The Orlando Gay Chorus is offering you a big ol' slice of "fruitcake" — the musical kind — in the form of their annual holiday variety show this month. In the event organizers' own words:
There’s one (or more) in every family — the fruitcake! Cherished by some, loathed by others, but remarkably quirky — who doesn’t love some nutty fun at the holiday dinner table?
The event looks to be based on the old Bing Crosby and Williams Brothers holiday variety shows, promising "songs from the whole chorus, ensembles, and soloists, holiday memories from our members, surprise visits from special guests," and a silent auction.

Orlando Gay Chorus' "One Slice of Fruitcake" happens at 7 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 17, streaming live on the OGC Facebook Live.

The event is free, but you are encouraged to donate to Toys for Tots or True Colors Giving in lieu of a ticket.
