PORT ANGELES — “Banking on Burlesque: A Presidential Affair” is the name of a fundraising event for Port Angeles High School student Zachary Davis' travel to Washington, D.C., to play trumpet with the school band this spring.
The “Affair” will start at Bar N9ne, 229 W. First St., at 10 p.m. tonight.
Admission is a $5 donation.
PA's stars of burlesque
It will star dancers, drag queens and kings, and burlesque performers Kiki Cat, Ginger Le Ame Voleur, Siouxzie Q, Gothic Lolita, Noxious Oxalis and Jakkie Kelevra.
This event, hosted by the PA Cabaret troupe, also features mistress of ceremonies Salmonella Rivière.
It is for the 21-and-older crowd, so Zachary, 15, won't be able to attend.
But his family members and friends, who are enthusiastic performance artists, hope to raise money to cover the $1,400 cost of traveling to the nation's capital with the Port Angeles High concert band.
Contributions beyond the cover charge are welcome tonight, and any money collected beyond Zachary's need will be donated to help other band students reach their fundraising goals.
