Derby Girls Give Back to the Valley!

Posted 13 Oct 2012 in Press

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Derby Girls Give Back to the Valley!

Phoenix – Roller Derby is no longer just about quirky names, fishnets and tattoos.

Since it’s inception in 2009, Desert Dolls Roller Derby has always been dedicated to giving back to the community that embraces and supports them. Every season, the Dolls host fundraising bouts for a specific local non-profit. Desert Dolls have raised over $10,000 in an effort to support such causes as Kids Need to Read, Arizona Desert Dogs Rescue, Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center and the American Suicide Prevention Foundation.

Desert Dolls Roller Derby knows it can do more to support Arizona and the Valley.

In addition to the bi-annual fundraising bouts, each of the four teams that make up Desert Dolls Roller Derby (Cosmic Killas, Joon Cleavers, Pretty H8 Machines and Shotgun Shirleys) will give a portion of monthly team funds to a local non-profit.

The Dolls are excited about this new opportunity to reach out to more local non-profits and look forward to the continued support of their fans.

For more information, contact Faith Hochhalter or Christina Gerrish at info@ddrdaz.com

About Desert Dolls Roller Derby:

Established in 2009, Desert Dolls Roller Derby is one of the newest leagues in the Valley. DDRD is made up of teachers, librarians, law enforcement officers and mothers, all of whom are committed to being an all-inclusive and community oriented league. We believe that any woman, no matter her physical prowess, can be a derby girl. What started out as a small group of friends has grown into a league of over 100 strong, independent women all with the same goal in mind: to provide family-friendly entertainment through one of the fastest growing sports in the country.
