Minnesota Roller Derby
Minnesota Roller Derby
Bring your Someone to Love to Minnesota Roller Derby's (MNRD) semi-finals event Somebody to Shove on Saturday, February 15. First, the Rockits take on the Garda Belts. Then, the Atomic Bombshells battle it out with the Dagger Dolls.
GET THERE EARLY, GET A FREEBIE
The first 100 fans to arrive will receive a special limited edition MNRD t-shirt. There will also be a very limited quantity for sale. When they’re gone, they’re gone, so get there early!
The pre-show will feature an exhibition bout courtesy of MNRD's junior roller derby league, Minnesota Frostbite. Halftime entertainment will feature The Shackletons, described by 89.3 The Current as "...Conor Oberst with a John Belushi attitude, fronting the Hold Steady."
Join MNRD after the bout at Camp Bar for a good old fashioned derby after party!
BOUT CHARITY AND DOOR CHARITY
The first bout charity for Season 16 is the Ann Bancroft Foundation (ABF) which inspires and empowers Minnesota girls to imagine something bigger and reach their full potential. The second season long bout charity is JustUs Health which fights to end HIV and reach health equity for LGBTQ and HIV-positive communities.
In addition to their season long charities, each bout they collect items at the door to support the door charity of the evening. Tonight's door charity is YWCA Minneapolis which offers interactive workshops to help participants understand and combat different forms of racial injustice.
