There will also be silent and live auctions, plus our special celebrity guest emcee Miss Richfield 1981!
SPECIAL GUEST EMCEE MISS RICHFIELD 1981
Miss Richfield 1981 is a drag legend. Her live performances have received critical acclaim, with the New York Post declaring Miss Richfield 1981 "the must-see act in Provincetown" and Twincities.com noting "in these divided times, Miss R is tonic - and gin - for the soul." In addition to selling out venues each year in top markets throughout the United States, Miss Richfield is the best-selling act each summer in Provincetown, MA filling the Pilgrim House five nights a week, and continues to be a headline act with Atlantis Events cruise ships and resorts. Over the years, Miss Richfield has appeared on numerous television shows including The Tonight Show, Today on NBC, Cake Boss on TLC, Watch What Happens Live on Bravo, and as part of the cast of Talk Show The Game Show on TruTV. She also created the online franchise "Bingo Bonanza," and has been a television spokesperson for Orbitz travel company.
