In a world… Where people gather to sing… One charity; eight songs… Money flying everywhere… Four motley fools shaking their asses and mouths! Beyond Vanilla 25’s first launch party of 2015 was a screaming success. The Dallas Eagle was proud to host the famous lip sync battle that followed the beginning of the Beyond Vanilla 25 season. If you missed it, you…really…missed it. Here’s why…
First, the four contestants were paraded before the crowd so the audience could glimpse the “fresh meat” that was to be displayed before them. Mama Payne was on hand to emcee the event and she was in full swing with introductions and a running, witty commentary. Soon the contest began with Malcolm, TC, Leo, and yours truly Bard, dancing and flaunting themselves along with their chosen song selections.
Our heroes were not just dancing and gyrating for the fun of it however… Although it could be said that these four do not need much in the way of motivation to get up and act like fools. Funds were being raised for the Sharon St. Cyr Fund and the HPOL/IPTC Travel Funds. Audience members were encouraged to donate to these causes in the form of tipping the dancers/singers as they performed. In some cases the entertainers offered their belts and hips in order for audience members to slip dollar bills inside. Why use the money bucket in front when you can have a more personal experience?!
TC and Malcolm raised enough money to go on to the second round to determine first place, while Bard and Leo fought for third. The songs became more personal and raunchy for the second rounds… Two participants decided that more flesh must be flashed in order to achieve victory; Bard and TC. While TC began his second song without his shirt, the Bard decided that losing the shirt during the song in an ode to 80’s music videos was the surest path to victory. Alas, yours truly did not raise more money than TC and he was crowned the winner of the lip sync battle for 2015.
When the dust had cleared and Mama Payne was handed the results, we had raised $600 for Sharon St. Cyr Fund and the HPOL/IPTC Travel Funds!! A great thank you goes out to all the people who competed and for the Dallas Eagle for hosting. The hard working folks of the Beyond Vanilla Committee put together a wonderful show that was enjoyed for all in attendance. A few of us had to leave before the bar closed, but the manner in which people were talking about the show proved it was a night worthy of the Leather Gods!
A huge thank you to all that donated and signed up for Beyond Vanilla 25!!!
