Rat Pack’s ‘high class call girl’ to share story at women’s expo

Jane McCormick

She was beaten, raped and left to die in a Las Vegas desert, but she survived.

Now she is sharing her story to help other young women avoid going into prostitution and to educate the public about abused women.

Jane McCormick, once known as Jane Harvey, was a high-class call girl who worked for members of the “Rat Pack,” during the 1960s in Las Vegas.

McCormick has recently written a memoir together with friend Patti Wicklund about the bold truth of her abusive childhood, rape, prostitution and inside stories as a high class call girl during the 1960s.

“Breaking My Silence: Confessions of a Rat Pack Party Girl and Sex-Trade Survivor,” is a memoir that not only reveals her 1960s liaisons with the Rat Pack (Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis, Jr. and Dean Martin), it also details McCormick’s molestation by an abusive father and the too-young marriage that led to her addiction to the big money of high-roller prostitution in Las Vegas.

McCormick will be the featured speaker at The Refuge Network’s 4th Annual 2012 Women’s Gathering Expo Thursday, May 17, from 4 to 8 p.m. at Maranatha Church, 24799 Forest Blvd., Wyoming, Minn.

Tickets are $15 in advance by calling 763-689-3532 or $20 at the door. Besides McCormick’s presentation, there will be food catered by Susan’s Custom Catering, live demonstrations on yoga, self defense and gardening, booths, silent auction, raffles and a bake sale.
