Fire Chief Uncomfortable Getting Strip Clubs' Holiday Money at Fire Station Ceremony

Update (4:53 p.m.): Firefighters will be picking up the check from strip clubs at the union's distribution center today, followed by a reception at the Gold Club.

Original Story ( 3 p.m.)Talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth.

San Francisco Fire Chief Joanne Hayes-White has refused to let a consortium of San Francisco strip clubs present a nearly $20,000 check to the Fire Fighters Union Toy Program this afternoon inside the fire station. Instead, exotic dancers will be doling out the check a few blocks away — appropriately enough — at the Gold Club.
The strip clubs say this is the first time they've been snubbed by local firefighters — who until now have gladly taken the $200,000 clubs have donated to them over the last 17 years — leaving the clubs scrambling to to find a last-minute location to present the check at 5 p.m.

Still, they didn't reconsider making the donation.
