Friends, family and fans alike gathered last night at Jungle Nightclub to help Lily White and her mother who lost everything earlier last month in a tragic house fire. It was amazing to see a community pull together for one of our most beloved legends. In total over $7,000 was raised and performers from across the country came to show their support for Lily.
David Magazine has been asked to share Benjamin Mayer’s touching toast as it was delivered last night in Lily White’s honor.
Raise your cocktails!!!
“Here’s to our Aunt, a friend and flower.
Her name is Lily, she has a built in plower.”
“You’ll be seduced, by her witty charm.
She’s into steel and leather, Rough and worn.”
“It starts so innocent, with a country hit.
Then a lovely ballad, full of curses and whit.”
“Last but not least, its time for a toast.
Everyone hoping, the one we love the most.”
“A dirty rhyme. A sexually twisted tale.
About fucking a dead, dug up male.”
“Its always a blast, to see her show.
Aunt Lil’ loves us all, every last homo.”
“So don’t lose heart. Lily was divinely sent.
I too miss that growl, and gardenia scent.”
“Let’s graciously thank her, for all the joy and laughter.
Get your wallets out, don’t be no slacker.”
“Please lift your schnapps, in Aunt Lil’s name.
Be healed my sister, We firmly proclaim!”
“Like a Lily‘s stem, May her life be long.
She is our Aunt, a flower; A beautiful song.
A special thank you from David Magazine, Brushstrokes and Jungle Night Club for all who showed their support last night. It couldn’t have been done without you.
