A very special THANK YOU post!
As we get ready for the 2015 season, the Charlottesville Derby Dames would like to extend a sincere and grateful thank you to all supporters, sponsors, donors, and fans that helped in the 2014 season! We hope we can count on your support again this season!
With your help, the league has continued to grow this past year, with:
- 8 home bouts Main Street Arena and Augusta Expoland
- 9 Belmont Bruiser bouts
- 8 local charities supported as bout beneficiaries
- 10 WFTDA sanctioned bouts
- 12 CDD All Star bouts
- 15 new league memberships
- 36 WFTDA rankings increased by our charter team
- 64 new community members trying out the Fresh Meat program for the first time
- 2,554 points scored against CDD
- 2,822 approximate miles traveled to and from bouts
- 5,249 points scored by the league
We have grown from a small handful of skaters learning the basics of derby through trial and error to our current league and 501(c)(3) corporation of more than 80 skaters, officials, and volunteers. While we battle hard on the track, we do it as a team, and our team includes you! We couldn’t have gotten this far without our fans, our sponsors, and the loved ones who have supported us.
Interested in becoming a part of Charlottesville’s roller derby machine? There are several different sponsorship packets through which you may peruse and find the right level of involvement for your organization. Whether that’s through a Star Pass or Flaming Wheels package with league merchandise and plenty of great promotional opportunities or a Living the Dream package which includes your logo on banners, all sorts of goodies, passes, merch and even league support at business events!
Maybe your level of support means attending bouts at Main St Arena, Augusta Expoland or beyond! Maybe you are that one super-enthusiastic fan who brings that sign with that witty phrase that makes us all laugh, who screams like a wild beast when your favorite Dame is announced, and who completely loses it when she makes that one crucial hit of utter destruction and demise. Or maybe your support means reading this blog right now! Checking in with our Facebook page, fanning from the safety of your own home.
Whoever you are, thank you.
We cannot do this without all of you! Our New Year’s resolutions are to continue to fight for our fans by representing greater Charlottesville as we climb the rankings and bust butts across the derby universe. We are honored to make a very important shout out to the following league and skater sponsors, who help to make this awesome sport an accessible and thriving nonprofit, serving Charlottesville and beyond!
THANK YOU TO OUR 2014 SPONSORS!!
