Exotic Dancers For Cancer

It's almost time for the Third Annual Exotic Dancers for Cancer Event.

Where: The Drake Show lounge. 606 Powell St. Vancouver.
When: Sunday, February 26, 2006 from 4pm till midnight

In a few short weeks a multitude of beautiful naked ladies will be volunteering in a Strip-a-thon for Charity. There will be a silent auction, as well as door prizes, t-shirts, and a great deal of side attractions to keep everyone entertained for hours. I've heard rumours of amateur hour, aquire a slave for a month, body cages, tattoos, and various other items.

For the first time in history, the Breast Cancer Society of Canada has agreed to accept our money. In the past we have struggled with finding charities to accept the proceeds. Donations from the Exotic Entertainment Industry are often not welcome. This is a HUGE accomplishment, and I am so proud of Annie Temple for making it happen.

As Annie wrote in her letter to the BCSC, “I would like to offer our donation to your organization from this year’s Exotic Dancers for Cancer which is planned for February 26, 2006. I am not sure if you feel that it would be unethical to accept money from exotic dancers as we have heard this from other organizations in the past. I would like to assure you that all the women involved in the event are participating out of their own desire to make a difference. No one can argue that breast cancer affects anyone of any occupation. Exotic dancing is a legal occupation. We pay our taxes and we vote. We are mothers, daughters, wives, and sisters. We dance naked to make a living, but in all other ways, we are no different from any other women.”

One small step for Strippers, one large chunk of change for breast cancer.

Call for donations. I will be on the phones collecting donations for door-prizes, as well items for the silent auction. If anyone would like to donate, please email me. ryannrain@hotmail.com

Donations may be made online through paypal at www.nakedtruth.ca. Click donations. memo "dancers for cancer" under 'payment for'

If you are Vancouver on Feb 26, come join The Naked Truth girls, and all the supporters as we make history, and whole lot of money for a damn good cause!!
