The Chicago Red Hots need your help to get to the 2013 USARS Nationals Roller Derby Tournament!
2013 is the inaugural year of the Red Hots, a USA Roller
Sports (USARS) Roller Derby team representing the great city of Chicago, Illinois. Although we are a new team, the Red Hots are comprised of veteran and rookie skaters alike, and we are poised to put Midwest derby on the USARS map!
In our first year of competition, we placed 2nd at the USARS Region 3 Qualifier and qualified for Nationals! The tournament will be held October 25-27 in Tulsa, OK, and we need help getting there!
Here is a quick cost break-down:
$500 entrance fee
$3000 airfare (17 skaters + 3 coaches/managers x $150 flights)
$2000 hotel rooms ($100/person for the weekend)
$2000 food ($100/person for the weekend)
What we are asking for with this fundraiser is help to cover our airfare costs. We are planning other events and looking for sponsors to help with the other costs of the tournament.
As a brand new team, we don't yet have money in the bank to provide any assistance to our skaters or coaches. SO! Any contribution you can make will help get us to Tulsa in good spirits and ready to skate fast and play hard.
We are also hosting a fundraiser event in Berwyn, IL on October 10th, with some really awesome raffle prizes and live music! Check out the event page!
If you are unable to donate at this time, we understand and still love you! Just show us your support in other ways and share our campaign on your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. pages!
