BROOKLYN, NY -- Remember when school fundraisers meant cookies, candy bars, or car washes?
One Brooklyn school thought it could do better.
But the whole "stripper" thing didn't go over well.
The strip tease may be a treat for some, but when some exotic dancers from the well-known club Scores in Manhattan promised to show up at this Brooklyn middle school, it turned into an embarrassing trick for all concerned.
Some parents were ticked off about the ladies who take it off.
M.S. 51 is the venue for this Saturday's Halloween benefit held by the puppetry art theater. The exotic entertainers had volunteered to help hand out treats but let it slip to the media.
The proceeds from the benefit are earmarked for 300 kids with HIV and Leukemia. Timothy Young, the head of the non-profit art group, says he welcomed all and any volunteers.
You can imagine the bump and grind that followed.
The principal disavowed any knowledge of the voluptuous volunteers. The Department of Education says self-promotion for strippers is not a school function.
Scores says the sexy dancers have helped raise money for other charities and pointed out the volunteers were not going to show up in their work clothes.
Timothy Young says he has now uninvited the exotic entertainers for the still scheduled event, which was originally planned to raise money, not eyebrows.
