Ohio Strip Joint Holds "Lap Dances For Haiti" Fundrasier

The "Lap Dances For Haiti" fundraiser was a moderate success, Marilyn`s on Monroe in Toledo raised $1,000. The $10 cover charges collected on Saturday went to an organization that provides food and clothing to Haiti.

Instead of donating the cover charges to the charity, the nightclub should have donated the lap dance fees. A typical lap dance, not that I know from personal experience, will set a horny guy back at least $100.

But at least the nudie bar is doing something to help, and I hope that Marilyn`s shames the churches who aren`t doing anything yet, into joining the Haiti relief effort.
