It’s the Savannah Sweet Tease 8th year anniversary and each year they have chosen a different nonprofit to support. 

This year that organization is Renegade Paws Rescue. On Thurs., Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. at Club One on Jefferson St., you can experience the show Risqué Renegades to give back to the local pet rescue.

“Savannah Sweat Tease loves to give back to the community that gives so much love & support to us, so fundraiser shows are something we’ve had in place since day one but linking with Renegade Paws Rescue started about 2 years ago and we’ve loved working together ever since,” the show producer Mangnolia Minxxx.

Renegade Paws Rescue is a non-profit volunteer-based organization committed to providing the highest level of care for unwanted, abused, or injured dogs in the Coastal Empire and surrounding areas.

The Savannah Sweet Tease Burlesque Revue is a unique troupe that combines traditional American Burlesque, with Neo Burlesque, Boylesque, and all other things avant garde. 

“All comes together to create a wonderful experience for everyone involved and for such an amazing, local cause,” said Minxxx.

Renegade Paws will also be debuting their new pin up calendar featuring members of The Savannah Sweet Tease. Minxxx says they kept the theme for the calendar open and fun, allowing each model to choose their own month and dress up according to how they felt.

Savannah Sweet Tease has grown over years and has become one of the more popular acts in town brining many different people together. They were voted Best Performance Art Event and Best Performance Troupe in Connect Savannah since their debut in 2013.  

Minxxx attributes their growth and success to “loving connectivity.”

“From day one the troupe has been one big family and the open communication we have with one another along with always being each other’s cheerleaders has always been key for us,” she said. 

The show is being hosted by Dick Cherry and stars Amara Fiyera, Amerys the Empress, Cassie Caddel, Dulcy Delicious, Ella Mentary, Magnolia Minxxx, Mighta Chondra and Rita D’LaVane. After the show, guests can go to the basement in Club One and enjoy a free drag show.

Renegade Paws Rescue was voted Best Animal Service by the Savannah community in the Connect Savannah Best of Savannah 2021, an honor the organization was proud to achieve after only two years of being established.

The director and co-founder Jennifer Taylor was voted Best Savannahian for the work she has done to improve the quality of life for pets and families throughout Savannah and the Lowcountry.

“Jennifer is an amazing person and her heart is so big, but also, the fosters that work alongside her are genuinely phenomenal. They truly love caring for the beautiful furbabies we all adore,” Minxxx said.

There is also an option to watch the show virtually for guests who cannot make it live. For tickets, click HERE
