The historic Culver Hotel will host a special night of live music and burlesque performances this coming Tuesday to benefit breast cancer research. The event, known as "Boobs, Books and Burlesque," will feature dazzling acts from the likes of April Showers, the current reigning Miss Hollywood Burlesque champ, as well as the award-winning Maxi Millions. There will also be music, complimentary passed appetizers and sangria cocktails, as well as an auction featuring exotic trips and other prizes to benefit the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation.

Leslie Zemeckis—author, filmmaker and wife of Robert Zemeckis of Back to the Future fame—is presenting the event and will be signing her latest book, Goddess of Love Incarnate. The biography explores the wild life of Lili St. Cyr, notorious striptease artist who shocked crowds around the world, including in Vegas and L.A. in the 1940s and 1950s.

"Boobs, Books and Burlesque" takes place on Tuesday, March 8, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. A suggested donation is requested for admission and reservations are required. They can be made by emailing and more information can be found here.

There will also be a cash bar to purchase cocktails, beer and wine, and food can be ordered from the hotel's restaurant.
