WWII-era themed party to benefit at-risk women veterans in Detroit

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
