Transastic Night to Remember raises funds for Ruth Ellis Center, Motor City Sisters

BY JASON A. MICHAEL

The Motor City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence held a fundraiser for the Ruth Ellis Center on Aug 13. Billed as Transtastic Night to Remember, the evening took place at Olympus Theater in the Menjo's Complex and included the screening of the film "Tangerine" as well as a catered dinner, a prize raffle and presentations by speakers from the Ruth Ellis Center in Highland Park, Transcend the Binary in Ferndale and Equality Michigan in Detroit. Nearly 50 people attended the event, which raised about $300 to be split between REC and the Motor City Sisters.

"I think the evening went fantastic," said Guard Dog Derpy Moto, one of the primary organizers. "People were raving about how much fan they were having and the food was incredible. I'm really proud of us."
