When: Thursday, Oct. 6, 8 to 11 p.m.
Where: W Fort Lauderdale (401 N. Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd.)
What: Sidelined for the past few years because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Lipstick Lounge—the signature fundraising event of Glam-A-Thon, the nonprofit that Tammy Gail debuted in 2006—is back this month with an updated look and a new beneficiary. Gail describes the reimagined event as a more mature version of the original fun, flirty, high-energy fashion affair. “It’s like a teenage girl growing up and becoming a woman and a professional,” Gail says. “We decided to change the vibe of the event and take it in a more upscale, fashion-forward direction.” The 13th edition of Glam-A-Thon’s main fundraiser, created to “Kiss Breast Cancer Goodbye,” promises a runway show with luxury fall fashion by Wade Allyn Miami, beauty and style vendors, a silent auction, fare from local restaurants (including Sushi Garage), cocktails and entertainment. Proceeds go to Memorial Foundation.
