DOORWAYS Presents ALTBALL | May 16, 2024

Step into a world where fashion meets philanthropy! Join me for an unforgettable evening at ALTBALL, where we celebrate the power of community and support the vital work of DOORWAYS.

For 35 years, DOORWAYS has provided emergency housing and supportive services for individuals in our community living with HIV. Their programs serve clients at the complicated intersection of illness, homelessness, and poverty—each with a number of basic needs required to regain stability in their lives: shelter, household goods, food, etc.

For clients, these basics represent refuge, safety, and support amidst an incredibly difficult time. Along with the wraparound services DOORWAYS provides, they form a foundation they can build, an opportunity to move from surviving to thriving.

Beauty From The Basics celebrates all that can flourish from this foundation. Simple necessities are often overlooked. Small comforts—otherwise taken for granted—can mean much to someone seeking stability. Housewares, personal care items, and objects that make a house a home. These can take on outsized importance to a life in transition. For many, they act as the building blocks to realizing their greater potential.

ALTBALL reimagines these supplies, turning them into dynamic, avant-garde fashions. Designers, artists, drag queens, ballroom legends, and community volunteers will showcase their creations on the runway while raising funds to support DOORWAYS’ programs.

Join us for a killer evening of community, fashion, and performance!
