Briefs: Rockettes to give charity performance

The Radio City Rockettes are more than a lineup of perfect legs. When on tour, the New York glam-and-gams franchise performs charity work in each city it visits.

They will give a benefit performance of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular on Wednesday at the Benedum Center, Downtown. All proceeds will benefit Child Watch of Pittsburgh, a nonprofit agency that helps at-risk children. The event is co-sponsored by Smith Barney.

During past performances of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular across the country, the Rockettes have appeared on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, children's literacy and the Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home-like setting for the visiting families of seriously ill children.

They've also visited American troops at Selfridge National Air Guard Base in Detroit and worked with Marines in Minneapolis for their annual Toys for Tots toy drive, the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.
