For those that know – It’s almost BYCAP time!!

For those that have joined the Rose City Riveters fanbase this season, let me explain what BYCAP is, and why you should help us out.

At the end of the year, folks get this wild idea that, out of admiration and/or gratitude, they should buy the capos a pint. This is a really, REALLY great idea but, honestly, there’s no way they can drink that much and remain functional through the game.

Thus, we have our annual season ending BYCAP fundraiser.   (This year it is going to be on September 30th when the Portland Thorns take on the Chicago Red Stars)

BYCAP is Buy Your Capo A Pint, and it is a chance for Thorns fans to say, “Thank you” to the volunteer crew that keeps the NWSL’s most passionate, loud, and proud supporters working together to support our beloved athletes.

Yes, we are asking one more thing of you on the last match of the season; Consider whatever funds you would spend on getting a complimentary beverage or two for a hard-working capo, drummer, horn player…  Instead of buying beverage/s and getting us smashed, put that money into our collection buckets and we will turn it into tuition for young girls to attend Portland’s own Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls.

“Creative voices of girls and women need to be amplified to create social change. Girls need positive role models and support for their creative endeavors. We can build a community where girls support each other rather than tear each other down. We can empower girls to recognize, understand and respond to discrimination. ‘Girls Rock’ is more than just a slogan.”

Head to Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls for more information on the AMAZING work they do, what they offer, what other donations they need and how to get tickets to The AMP Awards gala event in November.

Please help us, your capos, drums, and horns, give back to our community through BYCAP 2017 (and save our livers) on September 30th!

WAIT!!! Are you sad because:

  • Don’t carry cash?
  • Want to spread twice the love?
  • Going to be out of town?
  • Are a long-distance fan?

Thanks, love and passion – yours truly the RCR Capos DnT.

PS – Share the hell out of this please.  😊 <3

Ever had a moment (or several) of incredible gratitude for our amazing capos, drums, and horns? How many times have you thought to yourself, “I should buy them a drink!”

Now is your chance.

BYCAP—Buy Your Capo A Pint—will be held September 11th, when the Thorns take on WNY Flash. In advance of the match, we’ll pass the hat (well—buckets) throughout the north end to collect your cash contributions towards pints. These “pint dollars” will in turn be funneled back into our community to provide financial aid opportunities at nonprofit Rock & Roll Camp for Girls, which aims to build girls’ self-esteem through music creation and performance.

Please help your beloved capos, drums, and horns give back to our community through BYCAP.
