Peterborough Area Roller Derby Hits Track In Support Of Peterborough Humane Society

Peterborough Area Roller Derby's season opener—The Pivot of Oz—on Saturday, May 27th will put a little extra love in the lives of animals currently living at the Peterborough Humane Society shelter. Normal ticket prices for the double header are $15 per person at the door, with children under 10 free, but on May 27th fans can save $2 off their admission with a donation to the shelter.

The Peterborough Humane Society is looking for donations of non-clumping cat litter, unopened Royal Canin wet cat and kitten food, leashes, collars, gently used clean linens, dish soap, and kitten formula, among other items. Cash donations are also welcomed.

Doors open at 4 p.m., with full contact games starting at 5 and 7 p.m. Games feature Toronto Mens Roller Derby’s “Toronto Outrage” versus a surprise rival team and PARD’s "Riverside Riot Squad" versus GTARollergirls’s “Derby Debutantes” in the later game.

There will be a variety of items from local vendors, league merchandise and snacks available for purchase and some fun family friendly games and entertainment at half-time. There is no ATM on site, so spectators are asked to bring cash.
