On June 26, Mr. Peabody’s Restaurant at 136 Encinitas Blvd., flashed back to the ‘50s with a vintage fashion and car show for a good cause. Volunteers transformed 13 charitably minded hotties, including Kelly Burke, above, into pin-up models in a space donated by All American Hair Studio. The reproduction dresses were custom-made by Camille Sweet of Vintage Vamp and the jewelry was provided by Harbour Pointe Designs. Classic car and motorcycle owners came out to show their support, including the show winner, a flaming red 1949 Mercury owned by Al Morris. Plans for a fall Vintage Vamp fashion show at Mr. Peabody’s are already under way. The event raised $300 for team Cleavage Crusaders, walking in this year’s San Diego Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, an annual 60-mile walk to end breast cancer. Brie Cardosa, co-owner of Mr. Peabody’s and Cleavage Crusader, will be hosting breast cancer fundraising events and offering specials that include a donation to the cause at Peabody’s until the walk in November.
