On September 21, 2013, the Hellions of Troy Roller Derby League will be hosting our 3rd annual charity bout. This year the theme is animals (our furry friends) as we raise money for the Animal Protective Foundation (APF) and Peaceful Acres Horses.
The Annual Charity Bout is not your typical roller derby match. Admission is FREE (with suggested donation at the door). Join the Hellions and Capital District Men’s Roller Derby, plus several guest skaters, in our annual charity event.
One of our most highly anticipated events, this is the only roller derby bout where the audience has the opportunity to control the action on track through donations:
+ send a player to the penalty box;
+ buy your team points;
+ choose a jammer;
+ request a reverse direction jam
+ and more!
You'll have to attend the bout to do any of the above, but you can donate a buck per point to Team Cats or Team Dogs... or even Team Zebra (the refs and officials!). We're also giving fans the chance to Sponsor specific aspects of the bout in advance. Check out your options!
The Animal Protective Foundation is a
donor-funded, full-service humane society providing services to Schenectady
County and the greater Capital Region. Since 1931, the APF has held true to the
mission of its founders. They have an “open admission” policy which
ensures that animals are not turned away based on their breed, age,
condition or circumstance. The mission of the Animal Protective Foundation of
Schenectady is to address pet overpopulation and animal suffering through
education and appropriate action, to enhance human/animal relationships, and to
provide care to animals in need.
At Peaceful Acres Horses, rescued and retired horses guide human partners in healing emotionally, psychologically and physically. Peaceful Acres Horses’ mission is to provide a therapeutic environment for both horses and people to resolve issues related to grief, loss and trauma, and to regain strength and trust. Partnered together in equine assisted experiential learning and psychotherapy programs, the horses and people both learn skills and find a supportive environment that improves their quality of life.
All money donated will go to helping host this charity event and to help support these organizations!
