Mrs. Eda Bagel & Friends Triumph at Ace Hotel

Benefit raises over $5,800 for PERSAD Center

On February 3, the Ace Hotel was packed with adoring fans of Mrs. Eda Bagel, returning to Pittsburgh from her home in Colorado, in a special benefit performance for PERSAD Center.

Eda (aka Jeffrey Kash) is a former PERSAD Center employee and helped raise over $5,800 for PERSAD’S services to the LGBTQ communities. Thank you Eda!

PERSAD Center sends very special thanks to Delta Foundation of Pittsburgh for their in-kind donation of lighting, sound and mixing, and making the show look great! Additional thanks goes out to all who attended, and sponsors 5801 Video Lounge & Café, Central Outreach Wellness Center and Ace Hotel Pittsburgh.
