Little League Just Says No to Donation from Strip Club
We all had a good laugh recently over the fact that a local strip club donated $1,200 to a Little League team, but at the end of the day we agreed that everybody was a winner because the strip club proved that you shouldn't judge people and the team could go on playing, right?
Not so much. After much deliberation and soul-searching, volunteer Lennox Little League President Roberto Aguirre has decided to turn down the money.
"This morning we found out exactly where the check came from," Aguirre told KTLA. "It was a shocker to us."
Which is curious, given that the club, Jet Strip, has reportedly been donating to the league on the down low for years.
Regardless, this doesn't bode well for the league. The $1,200 donated by Jet Strip covered almost half of a fee increase imposed on the team by the school district from whom they rent a baseball diamond on which to play. It's unclear now how they'll pay the fee.
"We do not want the money from the strip club. I think, for us, we do need the money, but we will go some other avenue," Aguirre told KTLA, adding that he also hopes he can renegotiate the fees with the school district.
Meanwhile, as the kids sit inside and play video games, at least no one will be associated with any sinful naked ladies.
