Is this event is to benefit children and people show up scantly dressed. I believe that these people use the name of charity as an excuse to have a party and come out half naked and get wasted. It's a shame! They have no standards.

Everyone knows about Beaux anyway. Unless you live under a rock.
Or, you're one of those people that gets mad that you like something about ten thousand other people are into so you claim that whatever you're into "sold out". Am I somewhere close to the mark with that one?
The money went to a good cause anyway, so quityerbitchin.

Does it matter what people do or how they dress? It's not like they're only donating "to" have a party.
I'd rather donate money and party to celebrate our donations at the same time than just return some lame card in the mail with a check.
People choose to dress whatever way they wish. Has nothing to do with the event or charity.

Actually it does. This was held to raise money for children. Yet everyone was barely clothed. Too often people use the name of charity as an excuse to get drunk and dress scantily. Raising money for a cause for children shouldn't include such behaviors. What sort of an example is this organization setting for the children they are raising money for? If people were clothed properly then it wouldn't be such an issue. From the pictures this fundraiser looked more so like something you would see on Halloween at the Bar Complex. What ever happened to actually having a formal event? You say you want to celebrate your donation by drinking. This is the most absurd statement I've heard on this thread yet. How about celebrating by giving yourself a pat on the back for doing a good deed? Also events like this pose a threat to the women to attend dressed scantily. It invites predators right in and allows them access and a means to strike. There has been a recent increase in the amount of cases in which party goers have been slipped something in their drinks. There have also been increased instances of sexual assault at such events. By parading around half naked and intoxicated participants are setting themselves up to be assaulted. In this present age there are so many charities that raise money and awareness for victims of such situations yet during events like this those safety precautions are often over looked. If people want to go out half naked and drink they have plenty opportunity to in this area. Using a charity event to do so is quite shameful and distasteful.
Also events like this often play more up to the party aspect rather than the cause. People worry more so about their costume and getting wasted than they do the cause. I can bet that most people who attended this event didn't even know what the money was being raised for or anything about the cause.

Btw this country was founded by the principles set forth in the Bible. Without the Bible America wouldn't be here. That's why the settlers came to this country in the first place. The constitution would have never been written if not for the Bible. It wouldn't hurt you to read one sometime.

This country was not founded "on" The Bible. In fact, the founding fathers are quoted on various occasions as stating religion is not a good thing for this country.
Nor does the Constitution really mention religion in the least. In fact, there are mentions of laws protecting citizens from our government establishing a religion.
You might want to read one yourself. Not to mention, most "principles" set forth in The Bible are things like do not murder, commit adultery, etc. which most societies, even those without religion, have established.

You obviously failed to completely read my response.
Societies that have no established religion share those same values because they are within common sense. Do you really think people need The Bible to not murder other people? We have it and people still murder on a daily basis, so apparently it isn't doing it's "job".
