CNYRD is proud to announce our 2011 Non-Profit Partner!!!
Central New York Roller Derby is proud to announce that we have selected The Arc, Oneida-Lewis Chapter as our 2011 Non-Profit Partner.
Each year, CNYRD selects a local non-profit whose goals are closely aligned with our own to work with throughout the season. As our 2011 Non-Profit Partner, The Arc will receive a portion of the gate revenue from each of CNYRD's seven home bouts. Staff of The Arc will also join us as our guests at special 2011 bouts.
CNYRD and The Arc share a spirit of community inclusion and a mission to provide athletic and recreational opportunities to people of all abilities.
As we did last year, $1 of each ticket sold at the door at our 7 public home bouts will be set aside for The Arc, and after the season ends in September we will present them a check with the total. We will also have donation cans available for fans that would like to give more.
Last year, CNYRD raised $1230.00 for YWCA of the Mohawk Valley's domestic violence prevention programs and presented them a check at their 'Take Back The Night' event last October. Our goal is to beat this amount each subsequent year.
