Pressbox (Press Release) - ‘Stripping for Rosie’ – The full Monty girls

nI the Slad valley famous for the setting of Laurie Lees ‘Cider with Rosie’ novel, Kara Westermann and her friends were one night trying to figure out how to raise £17,000 for the treatment of her severely autistic daughter, also called Rosie.

As they bounced ideas becoming increasingly full of despair at the huge task ahead, one of Kara’s friends, Goldie, said she’d ride down the local high street of Stroud naked as a fund raising stunt.
The idea soon mutated into ‘the Full Monty Girls’ dance routine. Kara immediately whipped out her video camera and said right, ‘if we can’t do it in front of our friends right here, right now, we’ll never be able to do it live.’

Well, they did…and now the show ‘the full Monty Girls’ goes on national tour.

Info in more detail: The facts

The Full Monty girls are once again taking their Outrageous Naked Cabaret out on the road to raise money and generate publicity for a radical and effective treatment for Autism.
Faced with accepting available treatments for her daughter Rosie or raising the £17,000 need to fund treatment in the USA , Kara Westermann and her friends found a radical and effective way to attract attention and funds!
They were so successful with the Full Monty Girls Cabaret in 2005 last year it paid for both Rosie’s parents to go to the States with Rosie and get training from the Growing Minds Program.
Founded by Steven Werzs, who has worked with 1000 families over 18 years, the treatment uses an intensive home intervention program of one on one mentoring for six hours a day, five days a week, that has produced such effective results for Rosie, a beautiful and lively 5 year old with Severe Autism. Before treatment last year she could not feed herself, speak, or occupy herself in any way.
Now she can use 100 words, feed herself, play with toys and recognize her friends and family. All this is due to treatment with Applied Behavioral Analysis from the Growing Minds Program. Come to a great night out and support Rosie’s continuing treatment.

The show and tour is sponsored by local underwear company ‘Dirty Knickers.’
