The Burlesque Hall of Fame has a lot to be thankful for this holiday season. In our first full year at our new space, we have hosted thousands of visitors, developed gorgeous new exhibitions, taught excited burlesque newcomers and experienced performers alike in our studio classes, hosted film screenings, and added dozens of new pieces to our collection. And we’ve launched our quarterly local shows that have attracted hundreds of people to see some of the best burlesque around.
People love what we’re doing, too! We have 4.5+ stars (out of five) on Facebook, Yelp, Google, and TripAdvisor, and are currently ranked #15 in “Things to do in Las Vegas” on TripAdvisor.
We are so very thankful to be able to tell burlesque’s story to visitors from all over the world, burlesque veterans and newcomers alike. And we are especially thankful for you, our fans and supporters, without whom none of this would be possible. Your support allows us to keep growing and finding new ways to tell the amazing stories of burlesque.
Today is #GivingTuesday, a day created to reflect on and give back to the charitable organizations that make a difference in your life and your society. In the wake of the stress and consumerism of Black Friday and CyberMonday, #GivingTuesday focuses on making the world a better place.
We believe that burlesque makes the world a better place, and that preserving its history to share with the world is a worthy calling. If we have touched your life in some way this year, please consider making a donation to help us continue to make a difference in the year to come.
You can easily donate through our #GivingTuesday page. Your donation will help us to create new exhibitions and new public programs, acquire new objects for our collection and better preserve what we already hold, and help us get the word out to new audiences who may not have even heard the word “burlesque”.
To sweeten the pot a little, we have a pair of 2020 BHoF Weekender tickets to give away to one lucky supporter! Everyone who makes a donation at bhof.link/give2019 today (or any time until December 6) will gain an entry into the drawing.
So what are you waiting for?
