With ferocious names like Juno EscareMe, Rumble Pie, and Marcy Slayground, the members of the San Diego Roller Derby Team, the Starlettes, sound like women you would not want to mess with. But have no fear, although aggressive on the track, off the track the only thing bigger than their jamming, blocking, and bashing is their heart to help others.

We are excited (and personally I am ecstatic since my roommates and I have developed a healthy interest/obsession with roller derby ever since we watched Ellen Page, aka Babe Ruthless, block, dodge, and Whip It in the recent movie by that name) to announce that the San Diego Starlettes have chosen to raise money for Plant With Purpose at their next competition, or bout in roller derby terms.

This is an event you won’t want to miss! For those of you in San Diego, come watch the San Diego Starlettes challenge the Bakersfield Diamond Divas at 5:30 p.m. at Skateworld on April 10th. Tickets are $12 and can be pre-purchased at the rink, from your favorite skater, or online at http://home/boxcom/

In addition to satisfying your roller derby curiosity, you’ll be supporting Plant With Purpose’s critical relief and recovery efforts in Haiti. The Starlettes will be holding a 50/50 raffle at the bout in which all the proceeds to our Haiti program. In addition, a portion of the proceeds from the bout will also be donated. You can check out their blog here: http://home/boxcom/

Come support Plant With Purpose and the San Diego Starlettes as they skate with purpose!!
