However, as with all things in this glorious community, the need to win is tempered with the desire to help and support each other. It's part of what makes our community, and every facet of it, unique and special because while winning is a goal; it's not the only goal. I, for one, completely and utterly sucked during my one 'season' as an outfielder for Pitches Be Crazy but that never stopped Darcy from slapping me a high five, or Kate from giving me encouraging words, or Katie from yelling support from the dug-out.
As we kick-off the summer season of softball, Inferno and the Rose City Softball Association are proud to bring you the TONI CARR NO PLAYER LEFT BEHIND FUNDRAISER which raises money to help players off-set the cost of playing.
This Saturday's dance will feature an evening of good lookin' people (and lots and lots of them), as well as a 50/50 Raffle and some fantastic auction items.
First up, we have an AWESOME Date Night with Helix Holman who plays for the Inferno sponsored softball team. Aside from their dashing good looks and undeniable charm, here is what you get if YOU are lucky enough to win a date with Helix:
Coffee or Cocktails
With a Dandy, Dapper Butch who’s playful and flirtatious.
"Doesn’t coffee taste better when someone else makes it or brings it to you?
Let me make/ bring/ take you to coffee (No night before activities required, but possible).
We’ll have coffee and pastries wherever you/me or we desire (because the more the merrier- you may supply an extra person).
Not a coffee fan? Have you ever had a Dandy Dapper Butch take you out for a night on the town? I’ll take you out to the best cocktail places in town and match whatever you’re wearing (No after activities required, but negotiable).
Fret not, I have a bowtie to match anything you could ever wear.
Don’t like either option? I’m flexible, strong, and talented- I’ll come up with something you want."
