Proceeds to benefit the Tony DeBlase scholarship fund

You are invited to attend at the 2006 MAY BUZZ CUTS, BOOT BLACK, AND BBQ, Saturay the 6th, 4 PM - 8 PM at The Seattle Eagle. Proceeds from the event will continue the endowment of the Tony DeBlase scholarship under the umbrella of The Pride Foundation.

The buzz cutter will be the famous Patrick Bear, Gregory LaRouxe will be our bootblack, and Corey Krantz will be the cook. The menu will have something for everyone: a buzz cut for $15 (or a "deluxe" for $25), quick boot shine $5, traditional boot blacking $10, and deluxe boot blacking $20. We'll also have the more traditional BBQ offerings, of course: hot dogs $2, hamburgers $2, vegi-burgers $2, a bowl of chili with cheese & chopped green onions $3, and chili dogs are $3. The free movie will be "Siren of The Tropics" (silent), starring the beautiful, Bisexual, amazing Josephine Baker. These movies are all enjoyable but also meant to give more information on what sex education means. Also The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence from The Abby of St. Joan, might arrive or not to be present at the BBQ to bless hot wieners for a $5 donation.

Many people have come to understand more about the scholarship project, and to be involved with it. We are especially grateful to Rich Condon, Broker - Owner, Portico Properties, LLC (, who will be matching the donations brought in at May event.

If you cannot attend, you can still participate in the new project by being a "field mouse" - an idea based on the book "The Wizard of Oz".

The field mice were small but effective. They did not have much strength individually but as an army, they were very powerful. A small donation of $5 may not seem like much to you, but as part of a larger campaign, it can have mighty results!
