Shut Down Strip Club Hosts Toy Drive for Employees' Children

The owners of a well-known New England strip club that was shut down following a prostitution investigation have hosted a Christmas toy drive for their workers' children.

The owners of the Foxy Lady in Providence, Rhode Island bought $2,500 worth of toys and held a toy drive at a nearby bar over the weekend. Organizers say they wanted to make sure the families of the club's 200 full-time employees along with another 200 independent dancers left jobless were taken care of.

Foxy Lady host Kayla Matarese says the toy drive made a difference for her and her children.

The Providence Board of Licenses revoked the business licenses for the club earlier this month. The closure came after three dancers were arrested for allegedly offering to perform sex acts for cash.
