Battle of the Pole Dance Studios was created last year by LuAyne Brown. In 2010, the event raised $300 to go to The Red Devils – a non-profit support group for women with breast cancer. The event’s goal is to raise money for a great cause and display the type of pole dancing talent that is in the DC Metropolitan area.
