The Terminal City Rollergirls are excited to announce their partnership with the Cinderella Project for their Season Opener on April 6th 2012.
The Cinderella Project was started to help encourage youth to stay in school and achieve the milestone of high school graduation, thus giving young people the opportunity to break the cycle of poverty for themselves and their families. The Cinderella Project works to remove social barriers and promote inclusiveness and diversity. The Project recognizes outstanding young people who have succeeded in the face of overwhelming odds and it boosts their confidence and self esteem through respect and positive mentorship. The Project provides disadvantaged high school graduates with formal attire and a day of special treatment so they can enjoy their graduation festivities with pride.
The Terminal City Rollergirls would like to invite you to 'Sit VIP' at our Season Opener on April 6. All proceeds from the VIP Section will go to fund two bursaries for two graduating high school women who are continuing to post-secondary education while staying involved in athletics. TCRG is also collecting items from the Project's wishlist for the Cinderellas and CinderFellas on bout day: prom dresses, ladies' accessories, new toiletries, and Groupon deals for mani-pedis. Volunteers from the Project will be on hand to answer any questions about the organization and their bursary programs.
