12th annual Bat N Rouge promises sassy fun for a good Hill cause — Plus: CHS Weekend events

It’s Drag Queens versus Dykes at Bat N Rouge XII, Saturday’s annual fundraiser for the Capitol Hill Alano Club (CHAC). The competition is getting fierce and the Drag Queens coach was quick to remind CHAC that they don’t just practice – they rehearse.

“There has been some sassiness back and forth between the Drag Queen and Dyke coaches,” said Aaron Emde, Web/IT Member-at-Large for CHAC. “In years past, both teams have had wins. The fund-raising aspect of the game includes bribing the umpires and other fun stuff that can really change the direction of the game. Who knows who’ll win this time?”

This year’s Bat N Rouge MC is KUBE 93.3’s Shellie Hart, and The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will be working the crowd. The game will be held on Bobby Morris Playfield’s softball diamond Saturday from 5 to 8 PM. Bring cash to donate — or bribe the ump.

All money raised goes to CHAC, a non-profit organization that provides a safe meeting place for members of the LGBT community who are in recovery. More than 60 12-step programs meet at their E. Madison Street location every week, for people of all ages from many communities.

“The 12th Annual Bat N Rouge softball fundraiser not only helps CHAC achieve its vision, but it provides a significant source of revenue that allows us to keep our doors open,” Emde said. “We need all the financial support we can get to keep our doors open and continue to support Seattle’s GLBT community.”

  1. For sheer hoot hoot have some fun and donate some money – this event is tops.

    There will be food, dress up spectacle and good humored jokes and gags.

    I live it. Oh, I meant I love it.

    Rumors on the street that the the ghost of Cal Anderson will be present, and he helps to throw the first pitch, all the while smiling. Yes, that Cal Anderson loves the queens smile.
