Women Helping Women

They say you can never truly understand another person until you’ve walked a mile in her shoes. In that case, who can be more uniquely qualified to support “Women in Distress” than the ladies of Lips? Diva and her fellow queens have done a marathons’ worth of walking in their platform stilettos, and at 7 p.m. Sunday, November 7, they will stand up (and probably strike a fabulous pose) for Broward County women in need with “Diva’s Glits & Glam.” Diva and guest hostess 97.3 the Coast’s Tamara Gant will preside over a dragtastic display of queenly power. (Here’s hoping to one rendition of “I Am Woman.”) The special event includes a three-course dinner and a complimentary cosmo for $50. For $75, VIPs can sip champagne and rub elbows with the glamorous dames themselves at a special reception and score some prime seating for the show. For tickets and more information, visit womenindistress.org/community-partners.html or lipsusa.com, or call 954-760-9800, ext. 1253. Lips is located at 1421 E. Oakland Park Blvd. in Oakland Park.

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
