The show is produced by Do Right Industries, a Las Vegas based company dedicated to helping nonprofits thrive & creating memorable fundraisers with a sexy twist. In keeping with the companies philanthropic mission, Workin’ The Tease will also be donating 30 tickets back to Planned Parenthood employees so they can attend the event for free as the group’s way of saying “Thank You” and to help boost the morale of these hardworking individuals who fight daily for women’s, men’s and teen’s reproductive rights.

Just by attending the event you are supporting an organization that touches the lives of women in the Portland-area everyday & the people who do this much needed work.” noted Julia Reed Nichols, Founder of Do Right Industries. “In this day and age everyone deserves affordable sexual health care,” notes producer Kat Thomas. “And if taking off our clothes helps support Planned Parenthood’s cause, then we’re all for it!”
