Close to 200 people attended the third Wig Night Out Fundraiser on Saturday, January 28, at Level One restaurant. The event at 17th and R Streets NW raised almost $5,200 for the Point Foundation. All proceeds from the event benefited the foundation, which  provides financial support, mentoring, leadership training and hope to meritorious students who are marginalized due to sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.

“We had the pleasure of raising our wigs, our wallets and even our glasses for an amazing organization, we hope to updo ourselves next year in another hair raiser of a fundraiser,” said Dito Sevilla, one of the Wig Night Out organizers.

The fundraiser has a simple requirement for attendees: Wear a wig and donate at least $10 to the Point Foundation. The event was held last year at Dito’s Bar (which raised more than $1,000), but was moved to the larger venue at Level One this year. The event is sponsored by a local group, The Supreme Wig Council.

The organizers said that based on the unexpectedly large and enthusiastic turnout and the enormous positive feedback, they are looking at ways to expand the event in 2013.
