It looked like there might have been a lot of pint-sized sluggers who wouldn’t get to play baseball in Lennox, CA, because the local Little League was hard up for cash. But thanks in large part to a donation from a local strip club, the kids’ baseball dreams are still alive for one more season.
According to DailyBreeze.com, the club quietly made the $1,200 donation a couple weeks ago to the local school board.
“We don’t really like to brag about it,” the club’s general manager, a 15-year veteran of the Lennox Coordinating Council, tells the paper about why he didn’t make a big deal about the donation. The club has also made several hush-hush donations in the past that have gone to fund various things like scholarships.
A fellow council member outed the strip club as the mystery donor, but only to highlight the way the business has helped the community.
“They’ve always stayed in the background,” she tells the Daily Breeze. “I told [the general manager], `Hey, it’s about time we get you out of the background and let people know you care about the community’… They don’t do anything illegal. It’s a business. To each his own.”
