The Tampa Pride VIP Sponsors’ PartyDish-3014_copy

It was a very magical soirée! Everything was moved out of Hamburger Mary’s in Centro Ybor, and we do mean everything, including the booths. Michael and Frankie, along with a dozen volunteers, decorated Mary’s and turned it into a rainbow circus wonderland. There were inspiring speeches made by local community leaders. The entertainment was provided by the talented ladies of Mary’s. Of course there were cocktails and super tasty foods.
