Note: Any event not listed here is not an Official Southern Decadence Event, which means the money raised at such events is not going toward producing the 2018 Southern Decadence Parade. Please be aware that some bars may be hosting what they are calling “Southern Decadence” fundraisers, but that money is not being turned over to the Southern Decadence Financial Oversight Committee. SDGMs XLIV Frank Perez and Adikus Sulpizi do not know how the money raised at these events is being spent.
