Heels for Hope

A Variety Show Fundraiser

June 1, 2024
VIP Reception: 5:00 PM
Curtains: 7:00 PM

Kick off Pride Month with Maitri! 

Tired of chicken dinners? Join Maitri for a Variety Show to raise funds for compassionate care for people living with HIV/AIDS and those recovering from gender-affirming surgeries!

Hosted by former Miss Gay SF and the 30th elected Empress of SF, SF living legend Donna Sachet, this will be a night of amazing talent featuring:

Comedian Allison Hooker– local comedian, writer, and real estate agent extrudate. Allison regularly headlines at SF Punchline, Punchline Sacramento, and Cobb’s Comedy Club. Allison will have you laughing so hard you cry. And she once opened for a guy who opened for Dave Chappelle.

Singer Caleb Sasser– Recently seen on the 24th season of NBC’s “The Voice,” Caleb is a soulful singer who grew up listening to the gospel greats and brings his Goldsboro, NC roots to every song. Describing his sound as a rich musical gumbo, Caleb blends elements of jazz, R&B, and singer-songwriter genres to create a truly captivating listening experience. His angelic voice is not to be missed!

Fou Fou Ha!– A perennial favorite, Fou Fou Ha! is an ensemble of cartoon couture clowns creating an otherworldly interactive performance experience that celebrates our critical need for communal play. They will vogue the house down one minute and then make balloon genitalia the next.
