New York City, September 21, 2005 - You gotta hand it to my friend Cori. After her mom died of breast cancer this past spring, not only did she (with help from our friend lady_i) organize a burlesque show as a tribute, but she managed to raise over $6,000 for charity as a result. So hats (and tops) off to her good work! And it all turned out great, even if we didn't win any of the raffles. No, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. Rarely has staying out late drinking with friends on a Wednesday night felt so good. And all for a good cause - primarily to raise money for cancer research, but also to inspire Sue (and our gal friends) to some day twirl their own tassels. There was much talk that night about doing just that. Will it happen? I hope so. Because don't we all need more burlesque in our lives?

(Performers included nasty_canasta and mollycrabapple and possibly others who have their own LiveJournal, too...)
