Lowcountry Highrollers

When: Sun., May 5, 6 p.m. 2013

If you’re sick of being dragged to the same old sporting events, the women of the Lowcountry Highrollers are here to help. This Sunday is one of the ladies’ biggest bouts of the year, when the sisterly rivalry between the Ashley Riverdolls and the Holy City Heartbreakers will be settled once and for all. This will be their last local bout before the Home Team Championship in August. “I think it’s a lot more exciting and thrilling to watch than your typical sporting event,” says Lori Esteves of the Ashley Riverdolls. The Lowcountry Highrollers recently became a nationally ranked league, and they were one of only 21 teams invited to the East Coast Derby Extravaganza on June 28 in Philadelphia. Your ticket fee will help pay for their travel expenses. But you won’t just be supporting these hard-working ladies — you’ll also be able to participate in a raffle, with 100 percent of the proceeds going directly to Hugs for Harper, an organization that seeks a cure for pediatric soft tissue-cell cancer. “Helping out a charity is really important to us,” Esteves says. “We’re a non-profit ourselves so we really like to give back to the community.”
