On June 11, the Stonewall Kickball Pittsburgh league hosted a special event to raise money for FurKid Rescue. After an afternoon of kickball fun at the fields of Chadwick Park, the community gathered outside 5801 Video Lounge in Shadyside for the first annual Stonewall Kickball Pittsburgh Paw Pageant hosted by Akasha L. Van Cartier. Players and their pups strutted down our special runway to earn special honors while FurKid Rescue was on-site with adoptable dogs. Attendees donated to show their support for the contestant pups.
Congrats to the pageant winners
