We would like to issue a special thank you to our top donors. #1 fundraiser Bitch Puddin' wants to give an extra shout out to the patrons of Fred's Place, Teskes, and Henry's Hi-Life for their contributions. Thanks to CynTax's employer, Sunol Valley Golf Club. Thank you to Steve Wozniak for his continued support of the team as well as pledges that helped individual skaters reach their goals. And a special thanks to our superfan Arcady, who came out to see us at the Skate-o-thon and pledged $400 right on the spot!!
Thank you, everyone, for helping the Silicon Valley Roller Girls keep skating!! Now, come see the fruits of your donations at our last home bout on November 14th!
