A Balls-Out Ball
A fundraiser for the San Francisco Fog rugby team to help finance their trip to New York to compete in the third biannual Bingham Cup.
Varla Jean Merman, co-star of the film "Girls Will Be Girls," will perform at a charity benefit in April for the San Francisco Fog, a predominately gay rugby team. The event will be co-emceed by Greg the Gay Sportscaster of Energy 92.7 radio's morning show and by Donna Sachet, Empress XXX of San Francisco.
The event, called "A Balls-Out Ball," will also feature a bachelor date auction with at least three rugby bachelors putting themselves up for bid, and will climax with several ruggers performing a strip show where they have pledged to go all the way and show the "Full Monty." DJs - Metro "jonboy" Cummings, Stewie "doughboy" Bennet, and Vince "riceboy" Lim will be spinning on a dance floor at the ball.
The benefit, scheduled for Saturday, April 15th, will help the Fog raise funds to travel to New York in May to compete in the third biannual Mark Kendall Bingham Cup, an international gay rugby tournament founded in honor of Fog member Mark Bingham who perished in the terrorist hijacking of United Airlines flight 93 on September 11, 2001. The next Bingham Cup is expected to have over 1,000 male athletes from at least 10 countries, and will for the first time also include womenís rugby teams. The San Francisco Fog won the tournament in 2002 and 2004, and is looking for a repeat victory in May.
"The Bingham Cup gets more competitive every time and this year will be no different," said Jerry Acosta, Vice President of Sponsorships and Fundraising who played in both previous championships. "As the two-time defending champions, we are a target and the other teams are gunning for us. Iím confident that the Fog will come out on top once again as we did in San Francisco in 2002 and in London in 2004."
The fundraiser will be held in a private home in San Francisco's Castro District known as the Big Gay Frat House. "When we bought this place a few months ago, we wanted a place large enough to hold great fundraisers," said Kevin Goebel, one of the eventís co-hosts. "We jokingly call our home the Big Gay Frat House. What better way to inaugurate a frat house than with star entertainers and naked athletes?"
Tickets and additional event details are available at www.sffog.org or through the ticketing partner, www.frantix.net. There are no additional service charges when using Frantix. As a 501(c)4 membership organization, the Fog is tax exempt but donations are not tax deductible.
About the San Francisco Fog
The San Francisco Fog R.F.C. is the first rugby club in the western United States established to invite members from traditionally under-represented groups, particularly men of color and gay men, to engage in the world's third most popular team sport. One hundred-plus members strong, Fog Rugby welcomes newcomers, as well as experienced players, coaches and supporters of all ages, races, and sexual orientations. The team was founded in early 2000 and became a member of the Northern California Rugby Football Association in October 2000. In 2002, an Outsports.com readers' poll listed the SF Fog as their fourth favorite gay sports team in the country. Web: www.sffog.org
About Mark Bingham and the Bingham Cup
Mark Bingham, a U.C. Berkeley rugby champion and one of the founding members of the SF Fog, was one of 38 passengers on United Airlines flight 93 that was hijacked on September 11, 2001 by terrorists intent on crashing the plane into a government building in Washington, DC. The plane crashed in a field in Pennsylvania when passengers rushed the cockpit. In his honor, the International Gay Rugby Association and Board in coordination with SF Fog formed the Bingham Cup, a biannual tournament for gay-friendly rugby teams who strive for inclusiveness regardless of age, race, and sexual orientation.
