The Transformations Gala is a red carpet event, ten local women are chosen and compete on behalf of a local charity of their choice. And Independence, Inc. is lucky and excited to have Jamie Simpson competing on our behalf! The competition includes real pageant components such as evening gown, talent and on-stage question. This fun-filled event; however, has a twist in that each competitor is paired with a female impersonator. The female impersonator, or "consultant" if you will, assists in "transforming" their assigned competitor.
This year proves most spectacular with the addition of an audience choice award through text voting and streaming of live Tweets, to be shown throughout the night. The evening begins with a libations hour at 6:00pm with a cash bar provided by Liberty Hall and a small meal provided by Maceli's Banquet Hall & Catering.
At 7:00pm all 10 contestants, along with the show's host, Deja Brooks, start the competition with a fabulous opening number followed by gown, talent and on-stage question, allowing competitors to showcase their "transformed" beauty and talents. A panel of 5 judges will be judging the evening's events. Between event components, allowing competitors the opportunity to change from one outfit to the next, the female impersonators take the stage to wow the audience with their talents. At the conclusion of the event, one competitor is crowned as the winner with her named charity winning up to ten thousand dollars.
We hope you will attend this charity gala on Saturday, January 24th, 2015, at Liberty Hall. Tickets on sale now! Come and support Jamie and Independence, Inc.!
