  • About the event


    Hello. My name is Darlene Burns. I am a Published Author,Writer, Blogger and Philanthropist.

    I am hosting a Vampire-themed masquerade ball in Los Angeles, California. This themed event has dual purposes. Part of the proceeds will be donated to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.  My ultimate goal is to host this event yearly in different cities, nationwide.

    My event will reach an audience of up to 10 different organizations, local and out of town guests from across the United States. As a Sponsor, you will gain additional visibility through all of my social media platforms over several months before the event is held.

    My social media arm reaches an audience of several thousand followers across multiple networks. From Twitter to Pinterest and Instagram. I also reach consumers with consistent frequency for six months worth of website ads on my Facebook Author page. You will also be featured on my website. Average monthly website page views: over 5,000 with over 11,500 unique visitors. 

    I am extremely proud to be able to give back and at the same time hold an event that caters to all walks of life and I hope you will be a part of this successful event.

    As a additional incentive, I will be chronically filming behind the scenes of how the Vampyir Ball came to be and the actual event itself.  I will be submitting it to several Streaming Services as a "limited series". 

    Why should you sponsor?


    Giving back to the community is just one of the ways I choose to use my platform. By choosing to be a sponsor, you will be attaching your brand  to a classy and catered event, while also donating to two worthy causes. Both of these organizations not only help individuals with a difficult part of their lives, but also provide resources so they can continue thrive while maintaining a productive and healthy life. There are several packages to choose from which include Partnership announcements and thank you at the event, Announcements on all social media platforms, Exhibition Space/ Promotion at the event (roll-up, etc), Logo on event apparel for staff, Logo on stage backdrop banner, website, Logo on any printed material (Invitations, programs, and local ads).

    If any the packages do not meet your expectations, I am eager to work with you to structure the perfect sponsorship package to meet your needs.

    Darlene Burns

    Up until 2009, Darlene Burns struggled with her identity and found it hard to be her true self . She finally decided to come out of the closet as a lesbian after reading the book and watching the movie, “The Secret”. As an author, Burns started writing in high school, but wasn't inspired to pick her writing back up until a fellow author gave her the motivation to get started on her first novel “Midnight Comes with the Dawn: The Vampyir Plague”.

    Making a difference in the LGBT community became a personal mission for Burns, as she puts a new face on the Horror/SciFi/Fantasy genre, with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual characters of color. “As a Queer woman of color that is a triple challenge.

    "The doors that are closed to me simply because I am a triple challenge, I want to open, tear down and crumble. So the next female, woman of color (and happens to be Queer) doesn't have the same blockage. She can walk through with ease and respect. Simply put, I don't mind paving the way, because I know that there is an inspiring young girl who will do great things because I stood up and set up precedent for her and countless others. I'm excited that in my own way I get to be an example for so many that don't have a voice, can't speak for themselves or are still too ashamed to come out and be who they truly are”, says Burns when asked what makes her so passionate about her work as a writer, and an activist.

    Ms.Burns is a bacon and nap loving, Netflix watching, doting mother that loves to spend time with her partner. She wants to continue working with people and organizations to help fight LGBT homelessness and suicide prevention within the LGBT community. Ms. Burns works to create change and writes fo rreaders that want to stories of representation and who think outside the box.

    Darlene published her first novel, “Midnight Comes With the Dawn: The Vampyir Plague” with Wheelman Press in 2013, but after the publisher shut down, Burns self-published her novel on September 29th, 2015. She  released her 2nd novel "Alex Races Against the Dawn"  in March of 2019.
