Old & New: Dockers® Hosts FLANNELS FOR HEROES Comments (0)

Álex González_arrivals 1Wouldn't you love Álex González to demonstrate this for you?

Men's clothing brand Dockers® (part of Levi Strauss & Co.) held quite the classy event on June 19, Dockers®  Flannels for Heroes, a day-long cricket match at Burton Court.

This was the second year the brand sponsored the event, which was in support of veterans' charities.

From a press release:

All proceeds from the Dockers® Flannels for Heroes event will support two charities with the same mission to improve the lives of service men and women and their families. Walking With the Wounded (HRH Prince Harry joined Dockers® brand ambassador Jaco Van Gass on a trek to the South Pole in 2013), which retrains and re-skills servicemen to help them find new careers following duty cut short; and Combat Stress, which has for past 95 years helped UK veterans and their families suffering from depression, anxiety and PTSD following departure from the armed services. 

At Levi Strauss & Co., giving back is part of the company’s DNA. Powered by the pioneering spirit that goes all the way back to its founder, Levi Strauss, the Dockers® brand under the umbrella of Levi Strauss & Co. is always seeking ways in which it can make an impact. That’s one of the reasons the Dockers® brand was proud to support Flannels for Heroes last year, and why the brand chose to return as sponsors in 2015.

Jerry Mitchell BARES His Soul Comments (0)

 Jerry Mitchell speaks to Billboard about Broadway Bares: Top Bottoms of Burlesque, the 25th installment of his wildly successful charity show in which chorus boys and girls bare most for AIDS.

I'm going this year after skipping last year. It's hard to enjoy without shooting it, and they are unthrilled with photography.

We Had A Life Ball Comments (0)


DSC03013Gay up

Had such a fun time with my anonymous buddy at the bon voyage party for this year's Life Ball, held once again in Vienna, Austria, in support of AIDS Life.

1Jinkx, Paula & promoter extraordinaire Chip Duckett

DSC03014Amazing-looking Abdul

DSC03016Small wonder

DSC03018It's just the way that Jinkx loves her.

DSC03019Their vibeology was off the charts!

The intimate event was hosted at BG on the 7th floor of Bergdorf Goodman, where Paula Abdul, Dionne Warwick (with her singer granddaughter Cheyenne Elliott), Mad Men's Kit Williamson + fiancé John Halbach, Carmen Electra and the incomparable Jinkx Monsoon mixed and mingled.

DSC03006We were told not to ask family questions; all I wanted to do was talk “That's What Friends Are For” and Liz Taylor trash!
