VIEW PHOTOS | Swinging Richards Studs & Suds Car Wash Fundraiser

imageWhen one of the teams in the Hotlanta Softball League considered a car wash, their checklist included an ingredient to make the event stand out from other fundraisers: strippers.

And it was a pretty easy sell: Swinging Richards, which plays in HSL’s C Division, is sponsored by the gay strip club of the same name. So strippers are something they have access to in abundance.

Mix in some soap, water and a sunny afternoon, and the June 20 fundraiser was a sudsy success. Just ask the eager drivers who lined up their dirty cars in the parking lot as the dancers washed and team members dried.

imageCar wash fundraisers seem to be the rage this summer: Joining Hearts held one June 12, with another set for Saturday, and HSL’s Pink Cadets held their own May 15.

On Sunday, the Swinging RIchards team hosts the league’s after party at Frogs Cantina. No word if they’ll have the dancers in tow. But there will be Jell-O shots, raffles, trivia hosted by a drag queen duo and DJ Shane Smith.
