We're putting on Christchurch's very own Moulin Rouge style show with a celebration of Can Can dancers! Burlesque! and amazing trapeze artists.

- Amazing Can Can Dancers through Epic Entertainment
- Bonita Danger Doll - the International Burlesque Showgirl... including her famous Martini Glass Routine
- The Starlets glamorous, feminine and vintage entertainment, delicious three-part harmony renditions of everyone’s favourite classic songs from the 1920’s-1970's together with Ariel Hoop, swing dance and Bellydance by Aaralyn from TribalDiva Belly Dance Company.

Also an amazing vintage auction from some of Michelle's most favourite and treasured stores.

Beautiful Michelle was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and went on to receive treatment. Heart, breakingly we were told last year cancer has returned and mum has been informed by the doctors that she is now early stage 4.

Our mum Michelle has 4 adult children (we are between 25 and 40 years old) and 8 grandbabies with her eldest 13 years and youngest just 4 months old. Mr Hudson is mums Shih Tzu doggy who is her best friend and is 9 years old.

Mum is known for her gorgeous shop in Victoria Street, Christchurch called Truly Scrumptious (after Chitty Chitty Bang Bang), which was as beautiful as she is. Her shop was a display of her creativity and flare for beautiful antiques and new giftware, high-teas and friends, but her shop was destroyed in the February 2011 earthquake. Which broke mums heart. Her dream and creativity outlet taken down with the building. This same year mums marriage to our dad of 33 years ended!

The doctors have only given her 1-2 years which is too hard to think about! We want to do everything we can to help our mum be here with us and to continue to shine her light on all who she meets, for as long as we possibly can.

We would love to send mum on a trip of a lifetime to France while she is still well enough, making one of her dreams come true!

The Above was written by one of Michelle's daughters - Jessica... We also, as her friends want to help make that dream come true with a celebration of France - Viva la Paris.!

And you're all invited to come!
