Philly Roller Girls was formed in March 2005 by a group of women determined to bring women’s roller derby to the City of Brotherly Love. Ten years later, we celebrate a decade of derby in the city with a fun skating party in Philadelphia’s new summer roller rink.
We are also using this gathering as an opportunity to raise funds for our derby sister Nina Knockout. Nina and her daughter are currently in the hospital, and we will be donating all proceeds to her. Nina was an integral skater for PRG, as a Hostile City Honey, then as a Broad Street Butcher, as well as part of the first Liberty Belles team. Nina was also an integral member of WFTDA, and served as a liaison for the league for many years.
More info on the rink can be found here: http://
Admission: $3 for admission for non-Independence BlueCross/Blue Shield members, FREE for members
Skate rental: $10. Food and alcohol are also available at the rink.
The River Rink is generously donating all admissions ($3) from 7-10 pm to Nina and her family! Please bring family and friends! Bring the kids!
All proceeds to go to Nina!
