9pm to midnight $5 suggested donation at the door. Skill Focus: Burlesque's Third Birthday! - A Benefit for Syber Digit. The Abbey, 100 South Eola Drive, Orlando, FL. You're invited to Skill Focus: Burlesque's 3rd Birthday Party! What was conceived in a downtown karaoke bar while consuming much whiskey has become Orlando's premiere nerdy burlesque troupe and #1 theater company*. Come celebrate 3 years of boobs, booze, and glitter with your favorite nerdy burlesquers at The Abbey. This year, our birthday party also doubles as a benefit for our own Skill Focus family member, Syber Digit. Syber has been dealing with some health issues as of late. Her doctors suspect cancer and she requires expensive diagnostic tests to confirm. We want to raise money to help cover her medical costs. So join the girls (and guys) of Skill Focus: Burlesque for a fun night filled with music, dancing, games, magic, glitter, and of course boobies while we raise money to help one of our own.
The evening's festivities will include:
- Themed Drink Specials!
- Silent Auction!
- Tarot Readings!
- Skill Focus: Bake Sale!
- Musical Performances from SFB!
- Magic Show from Presto Digitation!
- Costume Contest!
- Games (It's not an SFB party without Twister)!
and of course, Nerdy Burlesque!
As always, costumes are encouraged but not required. There's no theme, just come in your favorite cosplay. But we will have prizes for costume contest winners.
ALL proceeds for the evening will go directly to paying Syber Digit's medical expenses. If you'd like to donate to the cause directly, you may do so via PayPal to Additional donations will also be accepted at the event. 21+ Only.
