My friend Joel plays on a softball in the Hotlanta Softball League
. However, his team, the Pink Cadets
, isn’t just a softball team. The Pink Cadets are a community of athletes who have come together to couple their passion for softball with their drive to combat breast cancer by raising money Susan G. Komen for the Cure
. Their first big fundraising event of the season is this Saturday and it is not to be missed!
This Saturday, April 10th, the Pink Cadets are teaming up with members of the local Atlanta Drag community will take to the field in Piedmont Park in the Bats – N – Rouge Drag Softball Game
to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. The game starts at 3pm so don’t be late! Here’s a little bit more from the event Facebook page:
Have you ever seen drag queens and kings play softball? Have you ever even seen them in broad daylight? Here’s your chance! Come join some of the biggest drag names in Atlanta and members of the Hotlanta Softball League as they help the Pink Cadets go to bat against breast cancer!

As I said above, tickets are $5 and can be purchased online via this Paypal link
. Please send your payment to email@example.com
. Be sure to bring your Paypal receipt to the game on Saturday in order to access the reserved seating area. Tickets for the seating area can also be purchased at the game provided there are still seats available.
In addition to the game, there will also be music and games throughout the afternoon. All proceeds benefit the Pink Cadets and their commitment to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
I think this sounds like an absolute riot and I can’t wait! I hope to see all of you out there as well – after all, this is truly a once in “laughtime” event!
