Derby Girls fundraiser promises a great evening of food, prizes and dancing

As Gold Pain City Derby Girls get ready for their upcoming season, fundraisers help make events happen

Gold Pain City Derby Girls are developing a loyal following and their numbers are growing with lots of action during their season. This fundraiser helps fund the team.

The Gold Pain City Derby Girls are back in action practicing for our 2015 season and we’re kicking it off with a Pub Night/Silent Auction/Dessert Auction fundraiser. We’ll be hosting this exciting night of food, prizes, and dancing on March 7 at The Occidental. All your favourite Gold Pain Girls will be there! Tickets are $30 per person and include a buffet dinner and entrance into the door prize draws. The tickets are only available presale. You can purchase yours at The Occidental or from any of our derby girls. Last year our pub night was a great success and loads of fun, so get your tickets today, they are selling fast.

Some great auction items have already been donated by our supportive local merchants and include a silver and baroque pearl necklace from The Breeze, two baskets from BoPeep Boutique, $150 Gift Certificate for A Me Su, a set of speakers from City Furniture, two baskets from Booster Juice, original art work from local artist Lyshia Brenner, and so many more wonderful items big and small to bid on! The Gold Pain Girls will once again be putting together a VIP table that will be auctioned off at the beginning of the event. The highest bidder of the VIP table spends the evening at a table set for four that is loaded with gifts for them to take home that include, but not limited to: GPCDG merchandise, season passes to our home bouts, the table décor and first servings at the buffet.

We will also be awarding numerous door prizes throughout the night. Oh, I can’t forget to mention the dessert auction! Mmm, so many yummy, decadent treats to bid on and take home or eat right there! And just wait and see what our sponsors at Barkerville Brewery have to offer that night!
The funds raised at the Pub Night go directly toward practice space rental costs to help make being a team member affordable to everyone. Now that our Fresh Meat intake and training is over and we’ve welcomed three new promising skaters to the team; Woo Girl (Shauna Wiwchar), Lady MacDeath (Elizabeth Hinkel), and Goldie Knox (Melanie Battye), we’re eager to get them on the track and start this season off! Help us make this possible by supporting our Pub Night at The Occidental on March 7.

See you there.
