Saturday, April 14th the Charlotte Roller Girls will be participating in the annual Spring Yard Sale and Blood Drive with longtime sponsor, Sleepy Poet Antique Mall. Twice a year, Sleepy Poet partners with the Community Blood Center of the Carolinas and Loaves and Fishes to collect blood and raise money for a good cause. The Community Blood Center is a blood bank which keeps all of it donations within the Carolinas. They will have a truck and qualified staff available to accept your donation. Loaves and Fishes is a local food bank that provides nutritious meals for a week to individuals and families in need. They will be out front of the antique mall selling barbeque plates to raise money for their organization. There will also be a yard sale on the front lawn if you are looking for a bargain on records, books, or other unique items.
While the All-Stars will be out of town battling the Rocktown Rollers, the other league members will be on hand, donating their own blood and selling you barbeque. You will also have the opportunity to pick up some official CLTRG merchandise to show your support for the league.
The Charlotte Roller Girls’ participation in the fall event last November was their most successful to date, with 18 pints of blood and over $300 in donations being collected. Help us set an even higher record this year. So come out and enjoy the spring weather with us. We hope to see you there!
