Out at Borgata
For the first time ever, Borgata was a corporate sponsor at the 2016 Human Rights Campaign’s Greater Philadelphia Gala on Saturday, February 27. The popular event, which featured many of the country’s premiere civil rights leaders,was held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown and included a silent auction and dinner.
Borgata’s Senior Vice President of Operations, Joe Lupo, who was in attendance, said that the resort’s support of the HRC was natural for Borgata.
“It stems from the very beginning that we want to create an environment that promotes equality for our customers and employee base,” Lupo said. “[The HRC] fit cohesively with this vision.”
If you liked variety, you clearly weren’t disappointed at this past Saturday’s raucous evening of drag at Borgata’s Music Box featuring the talents of Sherry Vine, Katya, Pandora Boxx, and Ginger Minj. The queens presented what can best be described as a naughty variety show for Atlantic City audiences, featuring everything from a partying Elsa from Frozen to a stripping Adele.
On Saturday, February 20, expect a Pandora’s Boxx to be opened at Borgata’s Music Box venue: Some of America’s top drag talent will invade Atlantic City for one night only, and there will be many familiar faces on stage. Sherry Vine, Ginger Minj, Katya, and Pandora Boxx will present a special evening, aptly titled America’s Drag Stars, for Borgata audiences, and nothing is off limits. We had a chance to sit down with two of the queens, Sherry and Pandora, to get a little preview of what to expect from their performances, plus some scoop on projects they are both working on.
If you’re sick and tired of giving (and receiving) the same old roses and boxes of chocolate for Valentine’s Day, Borgata has plenty of unique alternatives to spice up your gift giving this February 14th.
