Each year, New York Institute of Beauty and Long Island Beauty School host a competition in make-up, hair, and nails to support and raise money on behalf of Team Jack-Autism Speaks, Long Island Chapter. This year, the New York Institute of Beauty Make Up Team organized a Beauty Gala Event for Team Jack-Autism Speaks, Long Island Chapter at Chateau La Mer in Lindenhurst, New York. The theme of the event was Gatsby and since it was the weekend before Halloween, New York Institute of Beauty encouraged guests to come in their best Gatsby attire.
The event provided cocktail hour, a dinner buffet, dessert, cash bar, raffles, a 50/50 and an amazing Wild Cherryz burlesque dance performance and Red Carpet Appearance by singer Nick Tangorra. Drag Super Star Xtah C Extraordinaire was a guest celebrity judge. Trophies were awarded to the winners for each competition plus something of monetary value for example, $500 towards advance make up classes, $250 in Make-up, or $500 in hair products, etc.
