The Cherry Fund, established in 1996, and located in Washington, DC, is an independent, all-volunteer led & managed 501 (c) 3 organization.  The sole purpose of the Fund is to raise monies for service-based non-profit organizations serving the LGBT community of Washington and beyond.  Organizations whose primarily goal is to stop the spread of HIV infection & AIDS by prevention, treatment, and education, organizations that provide mental health services as well as groups who work with LGBT youth and their allies.  To achieve this, the Cherry Fund produces an annual weekend dance event fundraiser in the Spring, comprised of various individual events, and appealing to a patronage whose charitable contributions might otherwise go untapped. The Cherry Fund also produces occasional one time events seasonally, to maintain a community presence, to provide marketing opportunities for CHERRY Weekend, and to raise additional funding for our beneficiaries.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS: 

Horse Meat Disco:

The UK’s finest disco operators, Horse Meat Disco, return with another killer album of tried and tested underground disco, Italo and rarities that have been rocking crowds from their base in Vauxhall, London, to dancefloors worldwide during 2009-10.

Since their acclaimed debut compilation on Strut in 2009, residents James Hillard, Jim Stanton, Severino and Luke Howard (aka Filthy Luka) have continued to lead the way with their packed residencies at The Eagle, London, Lux in Lisbon, Tape in Berlin and Cihan in Istanbul. During 2010, as well as revisiting UK festivals like Glastonbury, Lovebox and T In The Park, they will be spreading the disco love to some of the world’s leading festivals also so watch this space!

Horse Meat Disco Volume 2 brings together another essential selection of New York classics alongside a host of lesser known discoveries for all fans of underground disco. Anthems include Zanzibar favourite ‘You Can Get Over’ by Stephanie Mills, Italo staple ‘Walkman’ by Kasso and Rinder & Lewis’ ‘Afrodesia’ under their El Coco pseudonym. Rarities include ‘I’m Not In Love (Girl You’re In Love)’ by Freda Payne’s sister Scherrie, ‘Cherchez Pas’ by Swedish model-turned-singer Madleen Kane and Italo oddity ‘’Touch Me Now’ by Bravo.

 

Horse Meat Disco is dedicated to the industry of human happiness and it pumps it out every Sunday at THE EAGLE LONDON (formerly South Central). Its the queer party for everyone; Homos and Heteros, club kids, bears, fashionistas, naturists, guerilla drag queens and ladies who munch. Musically it’s a disco behemoth of classics, italo disco, oddities, punk funk in the friendliest venue south of the river. Plus weekly buffet, happy hour, decorations, and spontaneous acts of exhibitionism.
