Ties & Tassels Presents: #HangInThereHeidi

TnT 10.12.14Ties & Tassels Presents:  TnT Bakesale – Fundraiser for #HangInThereHeidi

Recently, TnT stalwart Cruel Valentine’s mom, Heidi, had a major health scare. She is doing worlds better, but has a long road ahead of her to a full recovery. She went into the hospital on August 23rd, was there for three weeks including a stint in the ICU, and is now at a rehabilitation facility. During this time, she has been out of work, with zero income, and Valentine’s income has been extremely limited due to having to cancel many appearances and travel back and forth between Ann Arbor and Chicago. All funds raised will go toward recouping lost wages, preparing Heidi’s house for her homecoming, and caring for her pets, Hematite the cat and TediBear the shih-tzu.

Come on over to Lizard’s and stock up on some treats made by your favorite performers, their friends, fans, and family!!!

Delicious treats displayed in delicious ways!!!! Every penny donated goes to a great cause!!! #HangInThereHeidi

For anyone who can’t attend, but would like to help out, consider booking Valentine for a performance or private class in the near future. Also, donations will be accepted via PayPal to
