A Tribute to Judy Krause and The Leukemia Foundation

The Golden Girls of Drag have a deeply personal connection to The Leukemia Foundation, as the organisation provided invaluable support to their late sister Judy Krause during her battle with leukemia. The shows are a heartfelt tribute to Judy’s life and the foundation’s compassionate care.

Judy’s sisters’ decision to honour her memory in this way deeply touched Judy, who dedicated her life to spreading love, equality, and respect. Though she won’t be physically present, her spirit and legacy will undoubtedly fill the room. Both shows have been formally endorsed as charity events by the Leukaemia Foundation, underscoring their significance and impact.

The first show, “Divas Do Christmas in July,” will be held on 6th July at the Ipswich Football Club, and tickets can be obtained directly from The Golden Girls of Drag. For those in Brisbane, the “ABBA-solutely ABBA-licious” show at Kedron Wavell Services Club offers a unique opportunity to support a worthy cause while enjoying a night of exceptional entertainment.
