The San Diego Roller Derby Starlettes raised over $150 for Plant With Purpose’s Haiti relief and recovery program at one of the most exciting—and fascinating—fundraising events I’ve ever attended.

The Starlettes battled the Bakersfield Diamond Divas in a high-energy roller derby bout on Saturday night. Rumble Pie, the Starlettes’ star jammer, whizzed past the Divas’ blockers, racking up points as the crowd cheered for the home team. At halftime the Starlettes were leading the daring divas and the crowd relaxed to enjoy a hip hop halftime show performed by girls with seriously stellar dance skills and a killer break dancing duo who flaunted their sweet moves on what else but roller skates.

During the second period, the Divas launched a fierce dose of competition into the Starlettes’ galaxy and our persistent home team lost their lead. Although the mighty Starlettes lost the bout, Plant With Purpose was inspired by their creative fundraising efforts, awed by their star-studded performance and honored to be the beneficiary of their benevolence.

Thank you for your support, Starlettes!

And they’re off! The skaters whizz around the rink in a blur as they attempt to knock down the competition.
