Derby girls roll for food bank
Skirts, skates and capes were flying as the Okanagan Derby Dolls raced the track to help feed those in need.
The Derby Dolls and Okanagan Shuswap Roller Derby Association players raised $712.50 for the Kelowna Community Food Bank during the Spanksgiving Sk8athon to kick off their 2013/2014 season.
The non-profit league took pledges to skate for an hour solid in their superhero costumes, doing the Time Warp, YMCA, and many more favorites (this group knows how to have fun).
“We are super happy to have raised such a large amount in just one hour last weekend doing something we love,” said Winona Phillips (aka Major Psyc Ho), OSRDA media and sponsorship relations.
Catch the Dolls and the OSRDA’s Armstrong team the Candy Strykers play in the Spanksgiving Bout Saturday at Hassen Arena in Armstrong at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 and available at spanksgiving.brownpapertickets.com and at the door.
The double-header game features the Strykers against the Revelstoke Derailers and the Derby Dolls take on the Mashed Potatoes.
