Where can you find NOVA Roller Derby this month? While you’d expect to find us on the track playing roller derby, we also keep active in the community. NRD’s motto is “Skate hard. Give back.” In addition to selecting a Charity of the Month to collect donations at our bouts, we also seek out other charity events to support great causes while also having fun.
Come join us at The Ashburn Pub for some great food and drinks on Monday, March 21st from 6-10pm! Some of your favorite skaters will be guest bartending, and there will be a raffle for some fabulous prizes. It should be a fun night to get together with friends and learn more about getting involved with NOVA Roller Derby. Ashburn Pub will be donating 10% of sales all day to NOVA Roller Derby, so if you cannot come out during the evening, come anytime during the day.
Want to relive your prom and help a great cause? Join us on April 9th, as we partner with LGOG Angels Organization to help teens who can’t afford prom dresses or tuxedos. NRD will be on skates assisting with the event. We will be collecting prom attire at the event, including dresses, tuxedos, and accessories, as well as gift certificates to restaurants and salons. Theme will be One Night in Paris, and tickets are available online. More information about the event is also available.
On April 16th, NRD can be found in Leesburg assisting with the Bruce’s Ride Poker Run. Dissident Sons Motorcycle Club is organizing this event to help support a friend who is battling cancer. If you’re interested in riding in the event, you can purchase tickets online or you can join us at the end of the ride at Spanky’s Shenanigans in Leesburg. It should be a fun time with live bands and great food specials.
On April 23rd, join us to celebrate one of our sponsors, Comic Logic’s 1 Year Anniversary. Legendary creator Justin Jordan will be there. There will be prizes, raffles and huge sales! More information can be found online.
Also, on April 23rd, NOVA Roller Derby’s SuperNOVAs will take the track against the ladies of Southern Delaware in our third bout of NRD’s 2016 WFTDA Home Season! Doors open at 3:30 pm, first whistle at 4:30 pm at Dulles Sportplex! Get your tickets at: Brown Paper Tickets (or from your favorite skater!) or $12 at the door. Kids 6 and under are free.
The charity of the month for April is Semper K0. Their mission is to enhance the quality of life for wounded, critically-ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families by providing them assistance dogs. We will be collecting the following items at the bout to help this great organization: non-perishables preferred such as Durable Dog Toys and Stuffed Animals, Peanut Butter, Canned Chicken, and Blankets.
We hope to see you at one or more of these fantastic events, and if you’re interested in becoming a part of this awesome league, please contact us. We are always looking for volunteers, referees, and new skaters.
