Last weekend, the home teams joined forces to show their support and love for Rob Lobster. This weekend, Team Lobster expands to the full RCR community. The Wheels of Justice vs. Montreal New Skids on the Block bout will be a benefit for our dear friend, Rob Lobster.
Who is Rob Lobster? What a silly question to ask, but that’s OK! This phenomenal man has been a pillar of the Rose City Rollers and greater roller derby community for years. He has volunteered with our league since Day 1 –first as an official, then as travel team coach. Who was working the bench when WOJ made it to the WFTDA Championships? Yup, this guy. He now also plays roller derby with PMRD, skating with the Bone Daddies and Bridgetown Menace.
What is going on? Robin has recently been diagnosed with a glioblastoma — a very aggressive form of brain cancer. The cost of his treatment is unknown at the moment. But it will be expensive because he will require care and surgery the rest of his life.
During the bout there will be amazing ways to contribute:
• Auction at halftime! Interested in 2 weekend passes to the MRDA Championships in Seattle this October? You can bid on these passes. Rumor has it that there will be more even awesome stuff available.
• Amazing raffle prizes! Want to win a Gross o Doughnuts per month for a year from Voodoo Doughnuts? They’ll be in the raffle basket. PMRD has donated some great stuff that you will want to get your hands on. Plus tons of other amazing prizes and gifts!!!
• Team Lobster t-shirts! Bashonista from Left Turn Clothing made snazzy couture for sale in all colors and sizes! These $20 shirts will be available at the WOJ merch table.
All money raised from the raffle/auction/t-shirt sales will go directly to Rob Lobster.

There is a PayPal account that you can contribute to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be sharing this via our broadcast Saturday night so that our far away friends can pitch in too. (Please note that a donation to Mr. Lobster is not tax-deductible, as it is made directly to an individual.)
