Aug. 1, 2012. Did you get your car washed this past Saturday by an Appalachian Rollergirl (ARG)? The rollergirls spent their Saturday afternoon washing cars and selling baked goods at Peabody’s Wine and Beer. The ARG Team has a bout coming up this Saturday, August 4 at the George M. Holmes Center on ASU campus. The proceeds from the bout, will benefit the local Brady Bakken Family. Brady is a fifth grader at Valle Crucis Elementary school who has been diagnosed with Stage 4 Burkitt’s Lymphoma.
“We are really excited to be contributing and sponsoring local folks in need. We have to do fundraisers like the car wash to get funds together to put on our big bouts at the Holmes Center,” said ARG skater Raycer aka Rachel Albritton.
The mission of ARG is to encourage female athleticism, empowerment and community awareness through activities, events and charity involvement. The league was founded in March, 2010 by an ASU student making a post on Facebook.
This season ARG is undefeated with a record of 6-0. Having just come off a win in Savannah, GA this past month with a score of 264-81.
So, come out and support your local rollergirls and help them help others this Saturday, August 4th at the George M. Holmes Convocation Center at 7 p.m. ARG will take on the Carolina Bootleggers from Raleigh. This is the last home bout for the 2012 season. Tickets are available in advance online at www.theholmescenter.com and at local retail locations: Black Cat Burrito, Boone Drug at Deerfield and Lucky Penny.
