Celebrate Motherâ€™s Day Weekend with ILWRâ€™s Mother of a Bout!
The Ithaca League of Women Rollers (ILWR) continues to be Ithacaâ€™s one and only womenâ€™s flat track roller derby league, and is ready to kick off their sixth season with an evening of MOM-umental action and fun at Cass Park rink on Saturday, May 11, 2013. Don’t miss out on your exciting hometown sport – great crowds, half-time shows & roller derby.
Come support your local roller derby league and celebrate our 2013 Season Opener and Motherâ€™s Day weekend as your Ithaca SufferJets take on our neighbors to the North, Rochesterâ€™s All-Star team, the Roc Stars. Last fall when these two teams met at the Empire Skate Showdown, the Roc Stars were able to take the SufferJets by a narrow two point victory. You can bet the SufferJets are looking for a win!
Doors open at 6:30 pm and first whistle is at 7:00 pm. The night will roll right into a MUM-azing Hula Hoop half-time show with the Daughters of Manipura that will rock your socks off! DJ Becca will be in the house, spinning the best music around!
This boutâ€™s spotlight organization is The Advocacy Center and ILWR will be giving 10% of the eveningâ€™s proceeds to support their work towards ending domestic and sexual violence.
