Vikings, super heroes, alien forces, earth militaries, futuristic commandos and every hair-hopping warrior imaginable pay homage to the real-life warriors fighting cancer, HIV/AIDS and other life-threatened illnesses at City of Hope. During the night, enjoy special $3.00 you-call-it drinks and the epic battles of good vs. evil performed by Brittany Lynn’s Drag Mafia. The judging panel will include top industry experts, plus our esteemed line-up of celeb judges.
