Whit's Knee Fun-Raiser 2: Sunday, September 12 at Oakland's Stork Club

This Sunday afternoon and early evening, an all-star lineup will gather at the Stork Club in Oakland to support Whitney Moses (left) in her quest for a surgically-repaired knee. Yes, it's time for Whit's Knee Fun-Raiser 2!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with Whitney Moses, there's a blog article written by one of her friends at Among many other things, Whitney is one of the Hubba Hubba Revue's go-go dancers. She was seriously injured earlier this year, and because she's lacking insurance, she's facing huge medical bills for surgery to repair her knee. They had to re-attach her knee and associated ligaments! Not only that, she's had to stay off her feet, so she hasn't been able to work.

What can you do to help Whitney? You can attend the fundraiser this Sunday. The first one (see previous post) went well, but there's a need for more fun (and funds)! At the show this Sunday, you'll also be able to donate once inside. Plus there will be raffles and auctions for which there will be fabulous prizes! You'll be also be able to see such burlesque performers as Sparkly Devil, Alotta Boutté, Kiss Me Kate, and lots more! Award-winning ska band La Plebe will be rocking the house, too! The complete lineup is below.

And if you can't attend, you may contribute to the Whitney Moses Knee Fund at There, you may enter any amount in the "Give" box. Although some have donated hundreds of dollars, even a dollar will help further the cause! You can even purchase e-raffle tickets at that site. As of this posting, $7,450 have been raised. The goal is to raise $10,000 by September 13!

Your generosity will be greatly appreciated. :-)
