Brooklyn | Celebrating YOU 2023

The Celebrating YOU Fundraising Event at our Brooklyn Showroom is consistently one of the best days of the year, and 2023's version was no exception.

Now in its third year, Ilegal's Celebrating YOU program raises funds through special events & dedicated cocktails, for wayOUT, a non-profit that partners with local gender-expansive LGBTQ+ programs around the country.

The fundraiser at our Showroom is the program's signature event, and this year it featured a silent auction with prizes ranging from framed artwork and custom jewelry to free tickets to Drake at Madison Square Garden. DJ Sarah Von-H provided the tunes, free flash tattoos given by Shannon Virginia, and our friends at Bond Hardware joined us again to offer free piercings.

Our Celebrating YOU fundraiser continues on through the end of June. We are almost at our goal of $40,000 raised! If you would like to support this cause, please stop by a participating venue and order a dedicated Celebrating YOU cocktail. Find a venue near you and learn more about the program here.
