The Fifth Annual Exotic Dancers for Cancer doubled our fundraising results from last year between two events in Vancouver and Victoria last weekend.
With a combined donation of about fifty sexy performances, live auctions, t-shirt sales, and donations at the door, we raised more than just money - we raised spirits.
The energy at both venues was contagious. The spirit of giving was in the air. It was a celebration of life and love.
In the final tally, we raised just over $16000 to be donated to Rethink Breast Cancer and a trust fund for a Victoria toddler diagnosed with a germ cell tumor last year.
Strip clubs are erotic art theatres for the working classes - truth and beauty for the price of a beer. Our community [strippers] is not just industry members. It is our customers, our allies, and sex-positive people in general. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who contributed.
I just know that Jocelyne - the inspiration for Exotic Dancers for Cancer - was giggling at our antics from heaven during both events. The dancers who organized and participated this year went all out. It was truly a breast case scenario for everyone involved.
