Diabolqiue Ball 2011: Military Ops
 $7,000 in funds and 115 degrees of fun raised in one militaristic  night!

 

How do members of Philaelphia’s fantasy, fetish and leather/bdsm communities recruit fresh faces, have a ton of fun and support the work of important charities? At the end of every year for the past 15 years, The Diabolique Ball has raised thousands of dollars (and happy havoc) for one unforgettable night each year!

Last year’s smaller, more intimate crowd still counted in at over 300 guests (in addition to over 100 volunteers and performers who collected internal charity funds throughout the night). Uniformed military-themed costuming prevailed and attracted some out of town celebrities like internationally known dominatrix Irene Boss, New York-based interrogator Sir Guy and Ms. Illinois Leather Cherries Jubalee.

Guest tickets have resulted in a $6,000 contribution to this year’s two primary charitable causes: the formation of a Philadelphia Chapter of American Veterans for Equal Rights (in keeping with the military theme of the Ball, AVER actively fights for the rights of LGBT servicemen and veterans) and the Gay and Lesbian AIDS Education Initiative’s Teen food cupboard– which will provide homeless teens (who are often ineligible for government assistance) with nutritional support.  An additional 1,000 was raised through tips, donations, and charity booths inside the Ball for Project SAFE and The Leather Heart Foundation.

 

For those who have missed last year’s Ball, this year’s date has already been locked in with Shampoo Nightclub: Saturday November 17th. The Diabolique Ball traditionally happens the weekend prior to Thanksgiving, but lastyear’s soiree happened Saturday December 5 due to scheduling complications. Board members are happy that the date is returning to its original timing, where there are less holiday parties and obligations competing for the attention of potential guests.

 

The Diabolique Foundation is a 501c3 charity organization founded in 2004 to organize and manage the funds of the annual Diabolique Ball, which was launched in 1997 by PASSIONAL (then Fetishes Boutique)and Delicious Boutique (then Delicious Corsets). Board meetings are held monthly during the year and weekly (or more) leading up to the Ball. To get involved, email diaboliqueball@gmail.com
