ABOUT ASHEVILLE DRAG BRUNCH:
Asheville Drag Brunch is the littlest big show in town!  The event is designed to showcase local and guest drag queens, promote local restaurant businesses, and support local charities.
The show happens at multiple venues, is fast-paced family-friendly fun, and is designed to raise funds for non-profit organizations.  These local groups rotate and are advertised with each individual show.
A ticket to brunch ensures a seat at a table or bar, the meal, and a beverage. Remember to bring tips for the queens as this is the main way they raise additional money for the local non-profit.
During the glitter-adorned affairs, patrons howl, clap and cheer as the queens channel celebrities with spot-on lip syncing and sky-high heels. And wherever you look, there is cause for celebration. Lively groups  of different genders, races and ages  whoop it up for all sorts of special occasions, from birthdays to bachelorettes to anniversaries, and even divorces.

Siljoy Maurer

Holistic Perspectives P.O. Box 333, Enka, NC 2872  Phone: (828) 333-0103  | [email protected] or  www.HolisticPerspectives.com For many years now I have been mentoring men and women from all walks of life. It continues to be my greatest joy to accompany someone from “just being ok” into thriving! As a Mentor & Healer I partner with my clients in creating authenticity, wellness and deep contentment, in whatever area of their lives they are seeking change. The combination of giving very practical, livable tools for direct “next steps” while “holding the big picture” and then manifesting that big picture often feels like this: a new client brings me their life or life situation in a jigsaw puzzle box, they lost the lid and forgot what the picture on it looked like. I am good at knowing that picture and then guiding my clients/mentees to put all the puzzle pieces together.
