Despite a break from the heat wave, my Monday evening was still super hot and steamy thanks to Planned Parenthood of NYC’s 7th annual benefit, Summer, Sex & Spirits, of which BUST was a proud sponsor. The event, hosted by PPNYC Activist Council, raised over $20,000 for the organization’s healthcare services, educational programs, and legislative work.

Guests enjoyed the all night open bar with refreshing beer provided by Brooklyn Brewery:


The fabulous silent auction featured oodles of goodies like this beautiful necklace donated by Wendy Mink Jewelry:

Happy party-goers taking a break from dancing to the cool tunes played by Justine D and DJ Ayres:


Unfortunately my only picture of Mistress B doing her crazy/sexy balloon art is terrible, so this mediocre image of one of her creations must suffice: (Penis hat!)

Perhaps the most titillating moments of the evening were during the delightful burlesque performances by Calamity Chang, Darlinda Just Darlinda, and Ginger Brown:


Many thanks to the PPNYC Activist Council and all of those who participated in the event!
