Mint Julep In 2003, two employees had a casual conversation for raising money for Legacy’s HIV/AIDS services. Start with some sequins, add big false eyelashes, a spotlight and a stage and it is now a legendary LGBT event in Houston. The show features some of the top performers from the community and recognizes LGBT leaders with the honorary titles of Miss, Ms. & Mr. Julep. Proceeds go to Legacy’s comprehensive HIV education and support services, and specialized programs that include Nutrition, Wellness, Eye Care, and Behavioral Health to people with HIV/AIDS. This year’s event will be held on July 16 at Rich’s Houston.

Mint Julep 2017 honored The Diana Foundation, Bryan Hlavinka, and Jani Lopez and was emceed by Domenic Cusano and Ginger Grant. It was an afternoon of great entertainment by some of Houston’s finest Dream Girls & Guys. Proceeds from the event go to Legacy’s HIV/AIDS programs.

Schmooze SchmoozejpegThe Holiday Party of the season! Started in 1997, the Holiday Schmooze, a two-hour cocktail party in a private Houston residence, has been the winter season’s premier fundraising event to raise money for HIV/AIDS programs and services. Key values that contribute to the event’s success are 1) a residential open house with interesting architectural and interior design, 2) an abundance of service, 3) a festive yet informal atmosphere, 4) creative fare, a 5) a very brief program. Some to the city’s most philanthropic and influential people attend this exclusive event to schmooze. Save The Date for this year’s party on December 6!
