Bombshell Betty and Fromagique benefit for Ruby Lee Rouge, Thursday, April 2, 2009

Just a reminder that Bombshell Betty and Fromagique have put together a benefit show for burlesque performer Ruby Lee Rouge (aka Stella Lane from Dames of Glory) who was injured backstage at a show. The show is also a celebration of Betty's five year anniversary teaching burlesque in San Francisco. So head on out to Annie's Social Club Thursday night for some entertainment and catered food from Thyme to Eat Cafe and Catering!

Free Catering, Raffles, and more burlesque in one night than you'll see almost anywhere in the Bay Area!

We all know there is no a group health plan or even work'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 every mounting hospital bills due to an injury she got while backstage at a show.

. . . . And while you're at it . . . .

Bombshell Betty has been teaching professional burlesque dancers and hobbiest 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!
