In the name of charity, Savoy Orlando has turned over their bar to a gathering of celebs once a year for nearly a decade and 2021 won't be any different. On May 11, the Ivanhoe Village institution will allow a menagerie of pageant winners, politicians, theater standouts and drag queens to get behind the stick for brief shifts that benefit the LGBT+ Center.

Patrons can be served by a range of mixologists including State House rep Carlos G. Smith, Miss America 2004 winner Ericka Dunlap and Fred Schneider, frontman of the B-52s.

The event runs from 6-11 across Savoy's four bars. 100% of the tips go to benefit the LGBT+ Center. All jello shots sales go to the Center, as well. The event is sponsored by Tito's Vodka and 50% of all Tito's drinks go to help fund the Center's operations. Take a look at the whole schedule below.
