A Cinematic Burlesque Spectacular To Benefit Award-Winning Nonprofit Pin-Ups for Vets
Pin-Ups for Vets is known for throwing not-so-average fundraisers to benefit hospitalized Veterans and deployed Troops. On Dec 6th, the organization is inviting the community to join them for an Evening with “Bettie Page”: A Cinematic Burlesque Spectacular at the Crest Theater in Westwood at 7:30pm.
The event will feature Calendar Girls, Bettie Page Style Burlesque, fashion show by Vintage-Inspired Clothing designer Voodoo Vixen and a special screening of the film “Bettie Page Reveals All”. With proceeds of the event going to benefit our American Heroes, the nonprofit is encouraging the community to dress in their favorite retro-wear and join them in celebrating the work of this iconic Pin-Up.

2015 marks the organization’s 9th calendar and almost a decade of supporting our American Heroes. As an added bonus this year’s calendar includes 12 veterans, 9 of which are female veterans! Every year the nonprofit is featured in the media for the work they do to bring joy to veterans through more than 6,000 in-person bedside visits with hospitalized Veterans nationwide.
