(COLORADO SPRINGS) — Coming together to support a great cause, the ‘Media Brawl at WhirlyBall’ is gearing up for some intense competition between the FOX21 News and X1039 teams.
The event comes in response to the recent tragedy at Club Q and will benefit Inside Out Youth Services, which “builds access, equity, and power with LGBTQIA2+ young people, through leadership, advocacy, community-building, education, and peer support.”
Inside Out is dedicated to helping our local LGBTQIA young people connect with trusted adults and mentors and have a safe space as they navigate adolescence. We are so grateful to WhirlyBall for helping support healthy choices and relationships for our young people.Jessie Pocock, Executive Director, Inside Out Youth Services
It’s all happening on Sunday, Jan. 22 at WhirlyBall Colorado Springs, which will be donating activities and food so that 100% of proceeds benefit Inside Out. WhirlyBall “combines lacrosse, hockey, basketball, and bumper cars in a game of skill coupled with a touch of chance.”
The public is invited to watch the FOX21 News and X1039 teams compete against each other, while also enjoying live music, free activities, and food for the family.
