 NIGHT OF A THOUSAND
 
GOWNS 
Video from watarukitano uploaded on April 06, 2010The 24th Annual Night of a Thousand Gowns in 2010 Imperial Court of New York.

For several years Robin Strasser has hosted Night of a Thousand Gowns. She did so again on March 27, 2010.


"I always have the most fun in fund-raising here at this event," declares the actress in a recent Soap Opera Digest interview with Lauren Flynn. Adds Strasser, who was "knighted" by the court in 2007: "It's a great group of people who walk their talk and raise a lot of money for great charities and organizations that serve, really, everybody in the community that benefits from the work that they do. If it wasn't for that great group of people, I don't stay up past 8 o'clock most nights!"

The Night of a Thousand Gowns Charity Ball and Silent Auction is  through the Imperial Court of New York. The Imperial Court of New York, a 501(c)3 corporation,  has served the LGBT Community for the past 22 years. The Court has raised over a million dollars for charitable organizations including: ACRIA (AIDS Community Research Initiative of America) LIFEbeat (Music Industry Fights AID), Children's Hope Foundation, Broadway Cares / Equity Fights AIDS, God's Love We Deliver, Sylvia's House, Bailey House, AmFar's Treatment Register, Body Positive, and Callen-Lorde Community Health Center, among many others.

Robin is passionate about One Life, Many Voices. In late August, 2005 as the hurricanes Katrina and Wilma devastated the Gulf Coast, most especially New Orleans, the nation watched in helpless horror. In the aftermath, many were left homeless and psychologically traumatized; New Orleans was torn to near rubble.  Hurricane Katrina "is estimated to be responsible for $75 billion (2005 US dollars) in damages, making it the costliest hurricane in U.S. history. The storm killed at least 1,604 people, making it the deadliest U.S. hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee Hurricane."

In the days that followed, many searched for answers as to ways to help. On the set of OLTL, Robin thought of something creative. She spoke to her castmates about using their collective talents on a CD that she would laterproduce called, "One Life, Many Voices." A not-for-profit foundation, 501 (c) (3) organization,  was established to allow for an independent fundraising effort with proceeds supporting the area stricken by the disaster.
