The creators of Detroit Gastby
, a bi-annual 1920s themed party, are organizing another historically-themed event. And once again, a portion of the proceeds are going to charity.
Pin-Ups and Privates will be a 1940s USO-style swing dance event to support homeless women veterans through Activate Detroit Potential
(ADP), a nonprofit that supports at-risk women in Detroit.
The event will take place at the Detroit Boat Club on Belle Isle featuring music played by the Rhythm Society Orchestra, "a 15-piece dance band specializing in 1940s Big Band music." Tickets will also get you a WWII-era cocktails and beverages, and a dinner from chef Jeffrey Tatum.
Attendees are encouraged to dress in era-appropriate attire, "ranging from pin-up looks to zoot suits and 1940's military wear."
Pin-Ups and Privates takes place on August 24 from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. You can purchase tickets here.
