Proceeds benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America

MILWAUKEE, WI – New date, same “Spectacular” event. Due to an unforeseen shipment conflict at our venue, Spectacular! Spectacular! A Burlesque Bash to Benefit the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America has been rescheduled. The benefit will be now held from 7 pm to midnight Saturday, July 25, at Tramont Corp., 3701 N. Humboldt Ave. (just south of Capitol Drive) in Milwaukee. Tickets purchased for the earlier date will be honored at the July 25 event.  The event will feature a fashion show with top models strutting the burlesque-inspired creations of local designers Shannon Lee Molter and Miranda Levy from UW-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts, and lingerie and underwear fashions from Aala Reed and Boudoir by J. Rath. Guests will also be treated to performances by the Brew City Bombshells burlesque troupe, a live DJ, light fare, cash bars and additional Moulin Rouge-esque surprises. Burlesque-themed costumes are encouraged.

Jordan Dechambre-Childers, owner of the Elements of Style personal shopping consulting firm and managing and fashion editor of M: Milwaukee’s Lifestyle Magazine, will serve as emcee with Ringmaster and artist Garrett Gharibeh. Free parking will be available in the Tramont Corp. parking lot, just north of the building. Tickets are $400 for a reserved cabaret table for four, $50 for general admission or $20 for students with ID (must be 18 to enter), and are on sale at www.spectacularmilwaukee.com.  All proceeds support the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America and its mission is to cure Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the quality of life of children and adults affected by these diseases.
