Prom Dress Rugby

Willem Gates, left, helps Ryan Davis into his little yellow number before the anticipated match between the Seattle Quake men's rugby football club versus the Seattle Breakers women's rugby team for the fourth annual Prom Dress Rugby exhibition match at Cal Anderson Park in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, Saturday, June 29, 2013. The match coincides with Pride Weekend, and raises money for POCAAN (People of Color Against AIDS Network). Rather than full tackle, the teams plays a less-intense team tackle version of the game, and audience members are encouraged to donate money in exchange for calling plays and forcing wardrobe changes, where many sweaty dresses were exchanged.
