That’s right! The Friends of Skateworld will be the charitable group being promoted at this month’s San Diego Roller Derby bout! SDRD helps out a local charitable cause at each of their home bouts – and this month it’s the Friends of Skateworld! You will not want to miss this event! The ladies of SDRD will be taking on the Rage City Rollergirls – from Anchorage, Alaska! Not only will you enjoy some great roller derby, but there will also be opportunity drawings where you have a chance to win some great prizes!
- Riedell has generously donated skate products including a skate Backpack, Powerdyne Tool Bag, 2 sets of wheels and a Pullman skate bag.
- Skateworld is donating 3 parties for 20 of your friends and one pair of skates (Wave or Volt).
- The W Hotel is donating a one night stay at the hotel located downtown next to the stadium.
We’ll also have a booth where you can get more information about what’s been happening in this fight to save Skateworld, pick up a “Save Our Skateworld” t-shirt, wristband, and fill out a letter of support, if you haven’t already. All the action happens on Saturday, March 12th. Tickets are $12 general admission and children 5 and under are FREE! A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will go directly to the FOSW to help in our efforts to save this rink! Your ticket also gets you entry to the open skate session following the bout, so you can stay and skate afterward (skate rental is an extra $4). If that’s not for you, then be sure to check out the after party where you can have a chance to hang out with all the derby gals at the High Dive located at 1801 Morena Blvd. To purchase tickets online please visit: www.brownpapertickets.com/event/143746 -or- pick up tickets in advance at the Skateworld box office! We hope to see you there!
