The Queen City Roller Girls will cap off 2015 with a Charity Bout for the Family Justice Center.The Family Justice Center covers Western New York and provides vital and free services for domestic violence victims and their children through an extensive collaboration with 13 partner agencies, all located at one secured, comfortable location, where victims can get all the services they need to safely escape abuse. A PSA for the Family Justice Center is attached.
Doors will open at 6:30pm on Wednesday December 16th at Riverworks with first whistle at 7pm. The league has also announced a BOGO/Two-Fer deal for fans who purchase tickets online. The bout will have a holiday theme and we have heard rumours of Santa and Mrs. Clause making an appearance!
League Executive Director Cathy Pedro-Garrison is happy to cap off the year supporting an organization that provides such important services in our community, “The Family Justice Center relies on support to operate and we are more than happy to do what we can to support their mission. Breaking the cycle of domestic violence and removing barriers to access are so important and the Family Justice Center is at the front line of fighting for a community where safety is respected as a basic human right.”
