In honor of our great friend, Michael Doughman, a fundraiser was held at the Round Up Saloon on Saturday, June 15. Michael was Executive Director of the Dallas Tavern Guild and Dallas Pride until September of 2018, when he retired to Puerto Vallarta. At the Dallas Pride VIP Reception prior to the parade in 2018, it was announced that a special Scholarship Fund would be created in his name to honor his long tenure of service to Pride and the Dallas Community. All funds raised at tonight’s benefit will go to help with the scholarship fund. The event was emceed by Kathy Jack and Chanel Champagne. Entertainers included Patty Le Plae Safe, prior winners from the Voice of Pride competition and the cast of the Rose Room, among others. Great memories of Michael were shared by the performers and attendees.
