BHOF Bound is an ongoing, donation-based event series with proceeds feeding into a scholarship fund for a Chicago community member in need to attend the Burlesque Hall of Fame (BHOF) Weekender in Las Vegas in 2020.
Additionally, a portion of the proceeds will go directly to support the Burlesque Hall of Fame museum/organization - a group dedicated to the preservation of burlesque history/antiquities and their support of burlesque performers of all ages (including their generous support of Burlesque Legends).
This month, we will be screening the 2019 Tournament of Tease videos from the Burlesque Hall of Fame weekender (King and Queen categories). Come don your favorite pajama set, onesie, or teddy and get casual while we watch videos of Burlesque Legends-in-The-Making amongst peers and friends.
This scholarship was created as a joint venture between the Newport Theater (Eva la Feva) and the Chicago Academy of Burlesque (Camille Leon, Willy la Queue, and Vivi Valens).
