Soulful Productions presents a sizzling celebration of soul, Motown, funk, show tunes and drag with Sweet Bubbling Nights on Saturday, June 23, 2018 at 8pm at the Vancouver Playhouse. The gala fundraiser will bring together 23 of the city’s most iconic musical talents, female impersonators and dancers in support of the LGBTI Pulse Memorial Scholarship®. The scholarship is the first of its kind in the United Nations system presented by International Organization for Migration (IOM), the UN Migration Agency, and is awarded to Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex (and Queer) youth worldwide who are in pursuit of a university or college degree.
The LGBTI Pulse Memorial Scholarship was established in 2016 following the tragic shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Fla., and provides financial support to LGBTI youth around the globe who are in pursuit of a university or college degree. In 2017, there were 34 applicants from 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Canada, Colombia, El Salvador, Kenya, and Vietnam. This gala evening will include a silent auction, with 100 percent of proceeds benefitting the LGBTI Pulse Memorial Scholarship, which opens its 2018 application process on June 30, 2018.
Audience members will have the opportunity to bid on lavish prizes such as tickets to Frank Marino’s Divas Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada; Mardi Gras 2019 After Party tickets taking place in Sydney, Australia; gift certificates from some of Vancouver’s leading hotels and restaurants, plus products and services from local and national businesses.
This dazzling evening of entertainment will include a selection of popular soul, Motown, funk, and show tunes such as At last, I Feel Good, Somewhere Over the Rainbow, and I Will Survive performed by a line-up of vivacious stars.
