Great ExPETations

As you may know, Pets for Vets is a national nonprofit that pairs shelter dogs with returning veterans to help them deal with PTSD, depression and other post-deployment issues. Here are some videos explaining more about their mission and introducing you to some of the vets and pups they’ve helped.

*sniff* Is it getting a little dusty in here? Just me? Okay, fine.

Anyway, we’d love for you come out to The Triad Saturday night for Awkward Holiday Party, where we will be raising money for the NYC-Long Island chapter of Pets for Vets. Tickets start at just $15! (LIMITED TIME OFFER! Use promo code JINGLEBALLS to save 15%!)

Hi friends!

On December 9, We will be raising money for the NYC-LI chapter of Pets for Vets. Last year, between our Halloween show and another event, we raised more than $500 for this amazeballs organization that pairs shelter dogs with vets suffering from PTSD. We would love to raise even more this year, so please come out for a great night of burlesque and fun with an awkward holiday twist!

On Wednesday, October 26, LFF paired up with jewelry designer Patty Tobin for Sparkle and Tease – a fundraiser to benefit Pets for Vets of NYC-Long Island. While guests sipped Prosecco, LFF’s Ruby Mechant and Spicy L’amour demonstrated some of their signature moves while showcasing Patty’s shimmery showpieces, one of which was taken home by a lucky raffle winner. The best part is, we raised $305 for pets for vets! Thank you so much to Patty and everyone else who made this “pawsome” evening possible!

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.
