Little league to strip club: Thanks, but no thanks for your donation

The Lennox Little League in California is strapped for cash and looking for donations from members of the community.  But after receiving a $1,200 donation from a local strip club, the league decided that some things are more important than the money -- things like family values and respect.  That's why, after careful consideration, the Lennox league's 12-member board of directors voted to return the check.

"We kind of looked at the whole situation, and we all feel it's the right thing to do," league President Roberto Aguirre told the Daily Breeze.  Aguirre thanked the general manager of Jet Strip for his generosity, but insisted that the league didn't want to do anything to "disappoint or upset" league families.  "We would never want to offend our young girls," he said of the league's girls softball program.

In the meantime, other pledges have come in from all over the country as a result of media coverage.

And while the owner of Jet Strip, James Wallace, wishes the league would've used his donation, he understands why they had to turn it down. "I hope that after all the commotion, they will be helped," he said.
