Stripping for Breast Cancer

The Toy Chest Bar (18728 Ford Rd.) is Warrendale's own strip club. A couple of weeks ago, they held a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society to support breast cancer research. Just a couple of days before the event, however, the American Cancer Society announced that they would not accept the funds because of the nature of their business.

Luckily, the folks at the Karmanos Cancer Center weren't so picky. They were happy to put their money to good use.

The fundraiser went on and the Toy Chest Bar even managed to get it's story on the news. WDIV-TV (Detroit's NBC affiliate on channel 4) covered the story on their 11 o'clock news.

It's always good when folks from Warrendale show up in the news in a positive light - even though the report said that they were in Dearborn. Oh, well - they are right on the border so I guess I can forgive them.
