STRIPPERS and their patrons will strip you of your cash this weekend - but it's for a good cause.
Gladstone's adult club, The Boardroom on Central Lane in the CBD, will host its third fundraiser for children's charity the Starlight Foundation on Saturday.
A barbecue on the footpath will run into the early hours of Sunday morning, and feed the drunken, hungry hordes of workers and other patrons who frequent the venue every weekend.
Starlight Foundation volunteers will work with staff from The Boardroom to provide food and non-alcoholic drinks.
Construction, maintenance and industrial engineering firm Monadelphous donated equipment to Starlight Foundation for this and other fundraising events.
It's been a massive success and has raised more than $3000 each night according to the Starlight Foundation's Spike Buche and owner of The Boardroom, Rick Adams.
"We get a lot of patrons who come out and don't even want a feed, they just throw a bit of money at us once they realise what we're about," said Mr Buche.
The funds raised will go towards granting the wishes of sick children, including Gladstone's Abi Wilkinson, who was critically injured in a Brisbane car accident in April.
The charity work comes at a good time for The Boardroom, which is keen to differentiate itself from a second strip club proposed for Gladstone.
The Boardroom is in a slanging match with its potential rival, Mie Place, which lodged an application to set up two floors of adult entertainment on its Goondoon St premises.
The application is being assessed by the Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation, and has attracted community support as well as opposition, with an online petition currently circulating.
