Art, Fashion, Music for Sandwiches

Charity was never so fashionable! On April 2nd, it was national Peanut Butter and Jelly Day. One Sandwich at a Time took the opportunity to bring us their most successful event so far.  On April 5th, luminaries from the Art, Fashion, Performance, Bear, Drag and Leather communities all got together to raise funds and make sandwiches for the hungry and homeless of NYC.  The event took place at The LGBT Community Center of NYC and was hosted by celebrity/fashion photographer Rob Ordonez (aka Mr. Paddles 2013).  The happening featured a fashion show with creations by designer Geary Marcello (Foxxy Face Couture) with musical performances by recording artist Lovari and and parody performer Bear-Donna.  I also gave a performance, live singing "Hanky Panky" while being paddled by Ordonez.  When you have access to the reigning Mr. Paddles, you take advantage!  I think I enjoyed myself a little too much!  I had a great time with Jed Ryan (Mr. Rawhide), fashion designer Marco Santaniello, artist Will Chiapella, artist Carmine Santaniello, author/stylist Susan Korwin, photographer Steven Molofsky, model Sarah McKenna Bohannon, model Monica Lauren and many others!
