Founded by Emily Leeper in 2013, the LGBTQ organization Fiesta Youth aims to “empower youth to build a future where all people are accepted and loved as they are.” The youth support group’s biggest annual fundraiser, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, marks its fourth year with a masquerade at the Veranda, a 1920s-era Castle Hills estate situated on 35 acres filled with giant oaks and manicured gardens.

Emceed by DJ and producer Crystafer Mic, the event features a Fiesta-themed buffet prepared by chef Michael Bomberg, a silent auction (with tickets to Broadway shows, hotel stays and more) and performances by singer-songwriter Laura Marie (pictured), Grupo Folklórico de Bendiciones and the Matt Tardy and Team Stunt Show. During the festivities, the Fiesta Youth board of directors will award $1,000 scholarships to three college-bound LGBT youth.

$100, Fri April 20, 7pm-midnight, The Veranda, 1746 Lockhill-Selma Road, (210) 324-4900,
