Without a doubt CIUSA’s annual Gala is one of the most exciting events of the season. Guests can expect a taste of all they’ve come to know and love about Coney Island. With dapper Sideshow stars, scintillating Burlesque cuties and a healthy splash of the odd, CIUSA’s spring gala is one hell of a party in support of one hell of a cause.
