MUD. SWEAT. GLITTER.RED DRESS RUGBY 2011
Red Dresses versus White Dresses.
But plenty of charity!
The ORSU and Reed College women's rugby teams supported the good works of local community nonprofits with a Red Dress Rugby Benefit Match on Saturday, April 16, 2011.
The match was an entertaining display
of spirited rugby, with both sides scoring 5 tries each but the White
Dresses edging the Red Dresses 33-25 on conversion kicks. Most
importantly, we raised $730 to donate to the Portland Red Dress Party's grant fund benefiting local charities YWCA of Clark County, the Cascade AIDS Project's Pivot program, and The Q Center.Thank you to everyone who helped make Red Dress Rugby
a success and a fantastic time! Cheers to the fans who turned out to support the event, and special thanks to the following people:
