Blush & Bashful is Grand Canyon Performing Arts' premiere black-tie event that features performances by local and national artists, a five-star dining experience and a high-end auction. For 2014, our annual Blush & Bashful Gala featured international performer Kristine W, and a portion of our proceeds benefited Mulligan's Manor. GCPA and the Phoenix Metropolitan Men’s Chorus have enjoyed great success with this annual event, and look forward to continuing that success in years to come.

​Take a look below at some of the memorable moments from this year's event! For more pictures of our fabulous event, check out the album on our Facebook Page here.

A portion of our fundraising efforts for 2014 went to support Mulligan's Manor, a loving and supportive group home dedicated to at-risk gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and heterosexual adolescents from 12-17 years old. Mulligan's Manor is a family-oriented, LGBTQ-friendly community that nurtures and empowers our youth and their allies to reach their full potential, as well as provide tools for a safe and healthy life.  A "mulligan" is a second chance to experience the love and respect that every child needs and deserves.

About Blush & Bashful Gala

With approximately 7,000 youth in Child Protective Services in Maricopa County, there are likely hundreds of LGBTQ children and allies in need of respectful and safe housing.  As the only LGBTQA group home in Arizona, and only 1 of 3 in the nation, their primary goal is to support youth who have experienced trauma and need individual attention with on-site, 24/7 support focused on building healthy, positive relationships that will support the youth in their future career
