Rat City Rollergirls Will Be Skating For Local Charities This Sunday
We’re huge fans of the all-girl sk8er team the Rat City Rollergirls, and when we heard that they’re kicking off their 2010 season with a charity fundraiser at Key Arena this Sunday, Jan. 31st, we just had to announce it.
Donation amounts will depend on game outcomes, and the four home teams have chosen to support the following local charities:
- The Throttle Rockets with play for Fisher House, which assists families of military personnel.
- Grave Danger will support OldDog Haven, finding new homes for abandoned senior dogs.
- The Sockit Wenches are skating for Lambert House, a center for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning youth that encourages empowerment by developing life and social skills.
- Derby Liberation Front will support Pinup Angels, who send care packages to troops overseas.
Here are the details on the event:
