Derby + beer + dress ups

Is there anything better than roller derby, beer, and dress ups?

Why yes, actually, there is.

It’s roller derby, beer, dress ups, and an art auction to support a great charity.

My derby gang, the Inner West Roller Derby League, has teamed up with Young Henrys brewery to do some pretty cool stuff this year, and this is the first:

Young Henrys, Inner West Roller Derby League, Jackie Onassis

Young Henrys and the Inner West Roller Derby League put the FUN in fundraiser. (Yeah, ok, that was pretty bad.)

Local artists are donating work to be auctioned, with all proceeds going to Dress for Success, a not-for-profit group offering professional outfits and interview training for women who can’t just go out and buy these things.

The exhibition is this Saturday, from 12pm at Young Henrys brewery (76 Wilford St, Newtown). The auction starts at 5pm. We had some fun last night with the gorgeous Hellcat in a frock, pearls and skates, and one of the photos will be in the auction.

And then the after party is at the Union Hotel in Newtown from 7pm. There’ll be a prize for the best Jackie Onassis outfit, as well as a raffle to support the league.

Here’s the facebook invite.

Come along, buy some art, drink some craft beer, and meet a bunch of fucking fabulous people who have brought so much fun to my life.
