CMF Logo Pride 284The Crape Myrtle Festival (CMF) cordially invites you all to our 36th Annual Grand Gala and CMF Queens Ball. Mark your calendars for these two evenings, July 29 & 30, 2016 and plan for an awesome series of events. CMF, one of the nation’s oldest ongoing AIDS fundraisers, looks much different today than it did upon its inception 36 years ago. It’s a major community fundraiser but it’s also a signature annual grand spectacle social and community-building event for the GLBT community, which people from across NC come into Raleigh to participate in.

We look forward to two evenings of grand celebration of our 36th year of philanthropy; with decadent food, libations, and various forms of entertainment. Get ready for live vocals, live music, and drag performances. We will feature the accomplishments of CMF 36 and previous years as well, and we will introduce the CMF 37 Court. Stick around after our annual Grand Gala program for an awesome after party that will carry on through the wee hours.
