Fundraising for an injured performer!
Odessa Lil to MC!
See this show!!
I can't believe Bombshell Betty's Burlesquercise is turning five! I've been at everyone of those anniversary shows, either as an MC or performer, and every moment was truly an honor. I always say, Betty does this world a great service...she creates new burlesque dancers and that means more pasties and g-strings for everyone. Please come out to this show and show your support, not only for the the institution, but also for an injured performer!
Read all about it below (from Betty)...and here's the Facebook invite, if you are so inclined:

We all know there is no a group health plan or even worker's comp. for burlesque performers. So what happens when one of us gets injured at a performance and can't even work in any capacity for several months? If you said, "Move home to Mama!", you would usually be right. Stella Lane from Dames of Glory (Stage name Ruby Lee Rouge) is in need of help for mounting hospital bills due to an injury she got while back stage at a show. Come have fun, watch sassy performances, enjoy complimentary delicious snacks and win great prizes - all for a great cause!
. . . . And while you're at it . . . .
Bombshell Betty has been teaching professional burlesque dancers and hobbiests in the SF Bay Area for 5 years. She has taught THOUSANDS of ladies how to shimmy and shake their way on stage or just that special someone at home. Betty opened her own dedicated burlesque studio in March of '07 on her third anniversary and shows no signs of slowing down! Come out to and help her celebrate her 5th anniversary with three hours of burlesque!
