On Wednesday, June 7th, 220 guests of the Yoko Luna supper club were in on open secret — LEGEND — an evening by The Beauties and the Beasts Foundation, with DJ YO-C, filled with captivating narratives, awe-inspiring artistry, and most importantly, a cause worth fighting for.
An event dedicated to raising funds for admirable animal welfare organizations, it was also an opportunity to immerse oneself in magic and marvel, all while making a difference in the world.
Drag queen hostess Franky Dee revealed LEGEND to be captivating tale of Kimeco, a young woman whose courage and wonder lead her to a mystical snake.
With a single act of compassion, she set the serpent free, thereby releasing six magical beings from the animal realm.
Over time, she discovered her unique ability to communicate with animals and uses this gift to unite diverse souls to protect endangered species.
Her heartwarming journey was unveiled throughout the evening, enchanting attendees and creating an immersive experience.
The artistic vision for the event was orchestrated by Québec’s leading choreographer, Steve Bolton. His magic touch added an electrifying vibrance to the evening. The narrative came to life with dance, movement, and stunning visuals that captured the essence of the tale.
Talented painter RIO and celebrated designer Stéphanie Bélanger transformed one of Yoko Luna’s dining halls into an interactive carnival game room. Guests tested their skills and won trendy branded merchandise throughout the event. The playful energy, combined with the stunning artistry, only amplified the immersive, fantastical feel of the evening.
In sum, LEGEND was not just a themed event, but an epic journey of compassion and camaraderie, set against a backdrop of artistic expression.
It was a call to humans of Montreal to come together for an evening that celebrated unity, empathy, and the commitment to protect and respect all life from earth to sky.
