The Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance and The Schultz-Hill Foundation in association with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa continues its annual Pageantry in The Event Center at Borgata on Saturday, October 7. A not-to-be-missed entertainment event, Atlantic City’s annual drag show pageant is a spoof of the world-famous Miss America Pageant to raise funds for local charities. Proceeds from the 2017 Miss’d America Pageant will be equally divided between the Greater Atlantic City GLBT Alliance and the Shultz-Hill Foundation and then split among various charities.
The foundation is a 501(c)(3) formed in 2003. The Schultz-Hill Foundation has been established to promote and support the arts, history and education in South Jersey. In an effort to foster appreciation and awareness, one of the foundation’s primary goals is to provide educational scholarships, direct grants and funding. The foundation also provides the opportunity to nurture a given talent or simply broaden understanding of our world and social heritage. The foundation achieves its vision through close involvement with academia, and performing arts centers.
The Alliance is open to any business or person who is directly part of the GLBT or GLBT supportive community. The mission of the organization is to promote the economic, social and political advocacy of the GLBT and GLBT supportive Community of the greater Atlantic City region.
