YOU'RE INVITED TO... Boobapalooza 2014! A Dancers for Cancer Fundraiser

We hope you will join us for
Boobapalooza 2014!
A Dancers for Cancer Fundraiser at The Byrd Pub

SURREY, BC: On Sunday August 3rd, from 3 to 11 p.m., dancers will donate shows at the Byrd Pub, 10768 King George Blvd, Surrey to fundraise for the children of a former colleague who died of cancer in 2008. Before she passed away, Twyla Newton was a waitress at the Cecil Hotel for nearly 20 years. She also made and sold costumes to exotic dancers in the community.

When she died, her children found themselves at the mercy of family, friends, and the foster care system during a crucial and vulnerable time in their lives, as they were coming into the teen years and early adulthood.

"We've been able to help in a small but ongoing way over the past six years," explains Trina Ricketts, founder of the annual event. "By funding piano lessons, musical equipment, computers, graduation clothes and things like that, we have been able to support their passions and provide opportunities for growth."

The event is run through the volunteer efforts of - an information and support network of adult entertainers and friends. Although Boobapalooza was started by exotic dancers, it has become an event that welcomes performers from all styles of dance. "Clothing removal is appreciated but not required," says Ricketts.

Ironically, Ricketts sadly lost her father to lung cancer on June 17, during the planning of this year's fundraiser. "My dad had every t-shirt from every Naked Truth event," Ricketts shared. "He never made me feel bad for being a stripper. In my heart, I'm dedicating this event to him."

Boobapalooza will feature continuous, live entertainment, door prizes, a silent auction, photo booth, and more. Entry is by donation. Anyone interested in donating a performance or a silent auction item, is invited to contact

Funds raised will be going to the children of a woman who passed away from cancer. She worked with exotic dancers as a costumer designer and server in one of the Vancouver clubs. Her children have been recipients of our fundraisers in the past and we are proud to continue to offer them what little financial support we can as they are raised by their foster parents and become adults.
