The Famous Lady Bunny Hosts Drag Queen Bingo & Trivia with the Queens
Asheville, NC – January 4, 2017: Drag Queen Bingo is a popular, annual event that benefits the
animals of Brother Wolf Animal Rescue. In 2016, the organization held the event at the US
Cellular Center and it sold out 900 seats in just ten days. To meet the demand this year, Brother
Wolf has expanded the event to two nights and has brought in the famous New York City drag
queen, Lady Bunny, to host the event.
Due to NC gambling laws, bingo can not be held two days in a row. Therefore, Brother Wolf and
Geeks Who Drink will be debuting Trivia with the Queens for the second night of the show. The
entertainment, which includes drag queens from across North Carolina and Lady Bunny, an
aerial arts performance, hoopers, the Blue Ridge Rollergirls, and stilt walkers, will remain the
same both nights.
“We’re thrilled to be able to open the event to more guests this year with the addition of a
second night and we know trivia will be a ton of fun,” said Brother Wolf’s Event Director Leah
Craig Fieser. “Of course, we’re most excited about the addition of Lady Bunny who will be
emceeing the event. Lady Bunny has performed on stage with the B-52’s, Britney Spears, and
Joan Rivers, has appeared on Sex and the City and she even started the famous Wigstock drag
and music festival in NYC. She’s going to be an amazing addition to this uniquely Asheville
VIP tickets, new this year, include a pre-show reception with Lady Bunny, catered food, a VIP
only bar that will be open all night, a private photo booth with Lady Bunny and seating at tables
bordering the drag show runway.
Both nights are sponsored by O.Henry’s of Asheville and an after party immediately following
the show each night will take place at O.Henry’s. The after party will include a drag show at
11pm and Lady Bunny as DJ from 12am-2am. Separate tickets for the after party are available.
All proceeds from the after party benefit Brother Wolf.
Drag Queen Bingo and Trivia with the Queens take place just a few days before Valentine’s Day
and are a fun alternative to the traditional night of food and flowers. These events help to raise
funds for the work that Brother Wolf does in our community as well as their five chapter
communities. In 2017 the organization expects to impact the lives of over 6,000 animals as they
also begin work to build their new 85 acre sanctuary in Buncombe County.
