This highly anticipated glam event will be hosted by Lips’ own Nicolette with a special appearance by Michael Dean as Cher, and will feature celebrity guest servers Chris Caputo, Chef Josie Smith-Malave, Rich Schultz, Avi Ram and Ryan Young in drag costume.
SMART Ride is a two-day, 165-mile bicycle ride from Miami to Key West. This year’s 18th annual event will take place November 19 – 20. SMART Ride’s ongoing journey is to improve lives of those already affected by HIV/AIDS and to fund education, awareness and prevention to help reduce the new incidences of infection.
Five celebrity guest servers in drag or costume will be dishing out great food and fun alongside Lips’ very own cast of characters. Rich Schultz will offer an on-stage moment to raise more funds for the cause. The dynamic five have been chosen for their commitment to the annual bicycling event, and they will camp it up table-by-table to earn extra tips for the cause.
Lips will present its popular divas impersonator show with witty mistress of ceremonies Nicolette, who regularly hosts every Sunday during Lips’ original Dragalicious Brunch. Lips leading ladies will entertain along with a special guest appearance by Michael Dean as Cher.
Reservations are required for Lips’ “A Night of Stars” to benefit SMART Ride. Tickets are $60 per person, which includes a three-course dinner with soft drinks, gratuity and the show cover charge. An $80 VIP level enjoys the same, plus premium seating and one complimentary drink.
This year’s SMART Ride is made possible through the generous support of title sponsor CAN Community Health, Lips and other charitable organizations and individuals.
