Each year, the evening has a new theme that is always chosen in memory of founder Ron Farha, who passed away from AIDS. The activities that surround the evening are always chosen in conjunction with that year's theme, and include such things as guest performers, DJs, a silent auction, dinner and dancing. All the profits from the evening are donated to the Farha Foundation. Visit MASKARADE2012.com for more details.
