Two months ago, beloved NYC club icon Domonique Echeverria sustained life-threatening injuries when she was struck by a subway car. Her recovery is slow but steady, I’m told. (You can donate HERE to help with her medical bills.) Next week, friends of Dom’s are holding an”ECHEVERRIA EXTRAVAGANZA” on Dec. 22 to help raise additional funds for her recovery. Dozens of club personalities, performers, and DJs have agreed to work the event for free. The event will also feature a silent auction, a “Domonique Boutique,” and art for sale — with all proceeds going to Echeverria.
HuffPost has some wonderful testimonials from club legends Susanne Bartsch, Kenny Kenny, Amanda Lepore, Ryan Burke and others about the beauty and power of Domonique and the incredible life force she exudes. Check them out here.
Tuesday, December 22at 10 PM – 4 AM
605 W 48th St, New York, New York 10036

I’ve only met Domonique once before, when we did a Transformation together last year, but MY GOD, she made quite an impression on me. What an absolute force of nature. Watch the episode below, and marvel at her energy and incredible style.
