Twin City Derby Girls, a brand-new women's roller derby league, will host an informational fundraiser from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at Boltini Lounge in downtown Champaign.
With a theme of "Talk 'Derby' To Me," skaters, coaches and volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the all-girl sport rolling out in Champaign-Urbana.
The Derby Girls encourage anyone interested in joining the league – on skates as a player or referee, as well as on the sideline as a volunteer or sponsor – to attend and discover more about a future in this retro sport.
A limited variety of complimentary appetizers will be available, with a suggested donation of $5. All proceeds go directly to the Twin City Derby Girls, a skater-owned and operated nonprofit group.
