Portland, OR. It was selfie time when Cascade AIDS Project (CAP) hosted the fourth annual “Bat ‘n Rouge” softball tournament at Erv Lind Stadium in Normandale Park. The family friendly tournament on July 31st featured drag queens, music, and general hilarity. Bat ‘n Rouge raised funds to help those impacted by HIV/AIDS.

The tournament is a good-natured spectacle of the characters, peppered with comedic relief and spicy banter. The goal was to raise $20,000.
