The Grammy-nominated Go-Go’s received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2011, thirty years after they rose to fame in 1981 with their debut album, Beauty and the Beat. Jane has also led a successful solo career as a musician, songwriter and actor. She ranks #76 of VH1’s Greatest Women of Rock N Roll, penned her first #1 song with Keith Urban and fellow Go-Go Charlotte Caffey in 2000 and has even won a round of celebrity Jeopardy in which she wore bondage pants!

The night includes a Fashion and Dog show starring HourGlass Burlesque and features the sexy shelter dogs of the Hawaii Island Humane Society! Burlesque and Drag Show to follow. The $20 event ticket includes a complimentary glass of wine or soft drink and a chance to win fantastic door prizes.

Adopt, don’t buy! The mission of Aloha Ilio Rescue is to stop the overpopulation and euthanasia of unwanted dogs on Hawaii Island. Aloha Ilio Rescue adopts dogs from the Hawaii Island Humane Society Shelter and finds them their new forever home. Most adoptions cost $100 and include heartworm and flea medication, spay/neuter service and microchip. Aloha Ilio Rescue also provides home checks to ensure the safety of your new companion in your home.
Please join us for a fun evening celebrating women to benefit Aloha Ilio Rescue at Jane Wiedlin’s Panty Party on Saturday, December 19, 2015 at the East Hawaii Cultural Center in Hilo from 7:30 to 10:30PM.
