CPH 2010 Fundraiser

Sunday, October 3rd, 2010

Join Chicks for a get-together and fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 9, at Ravish on Eastlake from 5 to 7:30 p.m.

Ravish owners (of the female-owned Ravishing Radish catering) have generously offered to donate 10 percent of the earnings that night to Chicks Play Hard.  We feel honored and hope you’ll tell your friends, family and anyone who wants to learn more about Chicks Play Hard.  A visit to Ravish makes the night worth it, too. We guarantee it will become someone’s new neighborhood hangout.

Ravish on Eastlake is located at 2956 Eastlake Ave E., 98102, directly across the street from the Eastlake Bar & Grill. Read more from the Seattle Times.

We’ll be selling retro Chicks Play Hard t-shirts for $10 and if you stop by, you may get a chance to chat with Chicks founder Anna Collins and meet her family, too.  Can’t make it until 9 p.m.?  Not a problem.  We may not still be hanging out en masse, but Ravish is open until 10 p.m. and you’ll still contribute to our great cause.

Please email if you have any questions. We’re thrilled to hold this event and hope that we will see you on October 9th!

Looking for Lead Chicks

Thursday, September 10th, 2009

Each year our event relies on the time of volunteers; Lead Chicks are a key part of our programming and we are looking for 10+ women volunteers. So before you sign up, we’re sure you have some questions.

Q. What is a Lead Chick?

A. A Lead Chick is assigned to one group of 5-10 girls for the day (11-4). You’ll be in charge of gathering your girls between registration and the keynote speaker/opening. We hope that you’ll engage your girls, do some ice breakers and start to get them comfortable with you and their group. You’ll be in charge of getting them from one session to another, while encouraging them to try new things. We also ask that you stay until all of your girls have been picked up at the end of the event.

Q. How much time will this require?

A. Being a Lead Chick requires about 8 hours of your time, 2 for our pre-event meeting and 6 the day of the event. We ask that you show up to Miller Community Center around 9:30-10am.

Q. Ice breakers?! I don’t know any.

A. We’ll talk all about that at our pre-event meeting, tentatively scheduled the Wednesday before the event around 7pm.

Q. Do I have to participate in the sessions?

A. Mary & I have both been Lead Chicks, we find it to be a lot of fun to show the girls that you are excited and willing to take risks too. We encourage your participation, but do not require it.

Q. Who should I talk to about signing up to be a Lead Chick?

A. You should shoot us an email at or call Ann DeOtte at 206.910.2011.

We hope to hear from you!
