Come out and support The Center

Friends! We are just days away from our inaugural 2018 show, Bananas vs. Cherries at Drom!

As you know, part of our mission is to raise money for charity and this show is no exception. We are excited to announce that all the proceeds from our intermission raffle on Saturday will go to The Center.

In their own words:

The Center has been a home and resource hub for the LGBTQ community, NYC residents and visitors since our founding in 1983. We provide a place to connect and engage, find camaraderie and support, and celebrate the vibrancy and growth of the LGBTQ community. Offering health and wellness programs; arts, entertainment and cultural events; recovery, parenthood and family support services, The Center strives to provide a welcoming environment where everyone is celebrated for who they are.

Visit The Center to find out more—we’re open 365 days a year!

So come out and join us, because not only will you see a great show, you will be supporting an important, LOCAL organization. #burlesqueforacause

See you at Drom!

Get those dolls, Neely

Hello friends and lovers.

We femmes are big on inner sparkle, but what enhances inner sparkle more than silky freshwater pearls or a sparkly topaz cocktail ring? How about a sensuous gold and onyx cuff bracelet? Well, don’t worry, because we’ve got you covered. On 10/26, LFF is teaming up with jewelry designer Patty Tobin for a special evening that celebrates all things glittery and fun.

Toute les femmes will gather our sequins and boas and head down to Patty’s charming Chelsea boutique for a burlesque-themed jewelry event to raise money for a veeerrrrrrrrrry good cause: Pets for Vets/NYC-LI. This amazing organization matches up shelter dogs with wounded military vets. What better way to spend an evening?

In addition to donating a percentage of her sales to Pets for Vets, Patty will also be raffling off a piece of jewelry (estimated worth ~$300), proceeds of which will also go to the org. OMG, right?

Meanwhile, Les Femmes will be on hand to show you step-by-step how we burlesque and to give you a sneak peak of our sexy, scary-in-a-good-way Halloween show. There will also be other special surprises that you will just have to show up to see.

There will be bubbly of course, and other light refreshments. There is no cover charge, but space is limited, so be sure to reserve your spot ASAP. I’m telling you, this is going to be the event of the season. Well, at least until our Halloween show on Sat. 10/29.
