Who and What Is BurlyCares?
BurlyCares is a charity driven organization intended to assist senior legend burlesque and variety performance artists. BurlyCares is proud to announce we are officially a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit charitable organization as of June 17, 2020!
Founded in 2018, BurlyCares was created by neo-burlesque artists Ambrosia Minge, Miranda Glamour, Miz Charlamay, Sheila Starr Siani, Spiderella and burlesque legend Fannie Annie. Together these women saw a need to help the ever growing population of senior legend performers across the nation and around the world. BurlyCares was created with the vision of helping to close the gap on the needs that so many senior legend performers face after they are no longer able to make a living performing full time. It is the mission of BurlyCares to improve the quality of life and ease some of the stress so many senior legend performers face. BurlyCares vows to assist senior legend performers with referring them to already existing programs that can help them, donate medical equipment and supplies, combat and decrease isolation/loneliness and raise money for emergency needs as needed. BurlyCares also vows to support already existing programs and organizations that include the population of burlesque and variety arts legends.
