Peace, Love, & Roller Derby Bout

Our April 27 roller derby bout is going to be one groovy event.

This bout will benefit YCC Family Crisis Center's Aftercare Program. This program assists survivors after leaving the shelter in the transition to a new, violence-free life.

We are holding a donation drive. Helpful donations would be:  New or gently used vacuums, Broom/ Dust Pan sets, New mops or Swiffers, New boxed sets of pots and pans, New boxed sets of dishes and Cash donations

Tickets at the door are $10, $8 for kids 8-12. Buy your tickets in advance for a discount. Kids under 8 are free. Doors open at 6, bout starts at 7. Tickets online https://m.bpt.me/event/4208781
