Ben Shallenberger, a D.C. resident and dedicated LGBT rights advocate, was recently diagnosed with lymphoblastic lymphoma, a rare and aggressive cancer.
He’s preparing to travel to Texas for treatment and local friends have organized a fundraiser for Wednesday, April 13, at Nellie’s Sports Bar (900 U St., NW) beginning at 7 p.m. There’s a $10 suggested donation; all proceeds go to help Ben.
The DC Drag Kings will perform and a special guest will be on hand to present Ben with an award for his LGBT advocacy work, which includes a stint with HRC.
Stop by TONIGHT and help a local friend with a donation. More info here.
