No doubt that if you've been to Borgata, you've noted the extravagant glass sculptures that seem to drip effortlessly from the ceiling and rise majestically from the resort's floor. Those colorful works of art are none other than world-famous Chihuly glass, created by master craftsman Dale Chihuly, and some of our guests come to our resort just to take in the signature pieces by the American artist.
Ms. Diana Ross needs no introduction: The legendary diva has belted iconic tunes for decades, and has starred in countless movies and television shows. She's been honored numerous times, including a 2012 Lifetime Achievement Grammy as well as a 2007 Kennedy Center Honors. Now an intimate crowd of a few thousand guests have the lucky chance to see Ms. Ross live and in person at Borgata's Event Center during a one night only, SOLD OUT show on Friday, April 1. To prepare for all of her musical glory, we rounded up five of our all-time favorite Diana Ross videos for your viewing pleasure.

The actress, best known for her stint in the insanely popular Fox television hit Glee, took to the Borgata Music Box stage on Saturday evening, along with a bunch of her friends in harmony, to perform her touring set aptly titled See Jane Sing. It was a delightful series of song with quite a punch of darkly humorous sarcasm weaved throughout. Ms. Lynch's lighthearted night of entertainment was just what the doctor ordered…

Borgata rolled out the red carpet (or, since it was St. Patrick's Day, the green carpet) for a host of local LGBT individuals on Thursday, March 17th as the resort welcomed the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance for an evening of mingling and networking. Miss'd America 2015 Fifi DuBois was on hand to welcome guests, as well as Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian. Also in attendance were members of Philadelphia's Independence Business Alliance, plus staff from the OUT at Borgata program. We were on hand to capture the diverse and fun mixer.

It's a sure bet that Mazzoni Center's annual fundraising gala, Elixir, will be a winning event this year. The festive celebration that raises funds for Philly's one-stop LGBT healthcare and wellness shop has teamed up with Borgata to provide an evening of partying for a purpose.
Borgata has joined as a sponsor for the event, which is being held on Friday, May 20th at Thomas Jefferson University's Lubert Plaza. Of course, in traditional Borgata style, the resort will be ushering in a night full of fun as they'll set up a charitable casino lounge, filled with plenty of card games for the chance to win real Borgata prizes like hotel packages, show tickets, dinners, spa treatments, and more. Borgata's participation is all for a good cause: Proceeds will support Mazzoni Center's ongoing mission “to provide quality comprehensive health and wellness services in an LGBT-focused environment, while preserving the dignity and improving the quality of life of the individuals [they] serve.”
