Minnesota RollerGirls Bout 3: "Chilled to the Bone" coming to Roy Wilkins Auditorium on Dec. 15
SAINT PAUL, MINN. - The Minnesota RollerGirls (MNRG) will host their next bout on Saturday, Dec. 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium. In this double header event, the Garda Belts take on the Rockits while the Dagger Dolls go to battle with the Atomic Bombshells. The More the Merrier: this month we are partnering with multiple charities, including the Women's Environmental Institute, Wildlife Rehabilitation Center, and longtime partner, the Ann Bancroft Foundation!
In honor of MNRG's 15th anniversary, a new award will be rolled out this season, titled "The Season 15 Crystal Skater". This award will be presented to a roller derby athlete whose hard work on and off the track is representative of the MNRG commitment to the sport and community. Only Season 15 rookies are eligible for this award, so come out to welcome our rookies and see who takes the award home at season's end!
This year's season-long charitable beneficiary is the Ann Bancroft Foundation's Let Me Play Grant, which funds athletic and dance equipment or participation fees for girls ages 5 through high school graduation, and the Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. The Wildlife Rehabilitation Center provides quality care for injured, sick, or orphaned animals. The December door charity is the Women's Environmental Institute. The Women's Environmental Institute helps to inform and share knowledge about environmental issues and policies relevant to women, children and identified communities affected by environmental injustice. Please bring work/gardening gloves, garden tools, rain boots, rain gear, and general farm supplies to support the Women's Environmental Institute's programs and efforts!
Doors open at 6:00 pm. The first 200 fans to arrive will receive a limited edition t-shirt. Get there early for a pre-show bout featuring Sleigh Belle Dancers: a festive volunteer danceline spreading holiday cheer. Half-time live performances will feature Tubby Esquire. After the bout, join the Minnesota RollerGirls for the official after party at Camp Bar in St. Paul.
