The Boom Boom Room Is Back

No on Prop 8 Fund-Raiser Fills the House!!!

LAGUNA BEACH – If you were lucky enough to be at the gay landmark Boom Boom Room last Saturday night for the Halloween Party and Fun(d)-raiser for No on 8, you know all about it. If not, there are lots of pictures below of all you missed. It was just like the good old days, packed, fun and just what the doctor ordered. Thousands of dollars were raised, the speeches were short and the incredible dj spun til closing.

Special thanks go out to Laguna Beach Democratic Club Headquarters Manager and Party Chair Audrey Prosser, who ran the party like a well oiled machine, Event Promoter Glen Kasper who made this the party of the year, and all the volunteers who decorated, bartended, kept running out to buy more supplies – literally the dozens of people who worked so hard to make this event such a huge success. Let’s keep the Boom open for more special events instead of the empty storefront that it has been for over a year. It’s good for the ecconomey and good for Laguna.

Lots of people came in from San Diego, LA, Long Beach and even Palm Springs for the fund-raiser. It was so great to see so many Boom regulars. It definitely reinvigorated me to continue our campaign to SAVE the BOOM – Forever!!!!

Here are lots of photos from last Saturday for your viewing pleasure:
