SEATTLE STORM PRIDE NIGHT
Seattle Storm vs. Phoenix Mercury

Seattle can feel it – that building of groundswell right before greatness; that contagious energy and momentum that turns fans into fanatics.
The pieces are coming together for the Seattle Storm’s next run at the championship, and you won’t want to miss this journey. All the elements are there: hard work, talent, competitiveness, intelligence, strength, and will.
Breanna Stewart, Jewell Loyd, legend Sue Bird, and the Seattle Storm face off against Diana Taurasi, Brittney Griner, and the Phoenix Mercury for the Pride Kick Off game Friday, June 23rd at 7pm.

PROM DRESS RUGBY MATCH
Saturday, June 24
Bobby Morris Playfield (Cal Anderson Park)
Seattle Quake RFC and the Emerald City Mudhens RFC are extremely excited to invite the Community to our 8th Annual “Prom Dress Rugby” Exhibition Match, taking place June 24th at Bobby Morris Playfield (Cal Anderson Park) in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood. We’re looking at a 2:00p kickoff on Saturday, 24 June 2017 (Pride Weekend).
We are honored to welcome back Seattle Drag Personality, the incomparable Aleksa Manila as our announcer and referee; she will be working the crowd to sell penalties, changes of possession, tries (similar to a touchdown) and everyone’s favorite, COSTUME CHANGES! Proceeds from this year’s Prom Dress Rugby will go to benefit Gay City! Seattle’s LGBTQ Center promotes wellness in LGBTQ communities by providing health services, connecting people to resources, fostering arts, and building community. Gay City is the leading provider of HIV and STI testing in King County.
Why “Prom Dress Rugby”? Because the members of the Emerald City Mudhens will be suiting up and Seattle Quake RFC will be wearing dresses. Due to the limitations – and the overall fun nature of this exhibition match, we will not be playing full tackle rugby, but will be playing “light wrap” or “team tackle”. Rugby League rather than Rugby Union.
This is a FREE EVENT, open to the public. Please encourage your friends and family to attend, and support a great cause this Pride weekend.
Be sure to join us at the Cuff after the game for post-match shenanigans!
