Habitat of Durham Women Build - LUEWWD IX: Nailin' It!
The League of Upper Extremity Wrestling Women of Durham (LUEWWD - pronounced “lewd”) is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Durham on Saturday, September 7th, to raise funds toward its 2013 Women Build. The Women Build program empowers women to better their community and be leaders on the construction site by building a home in partnership with a hardworking family.
The September 7th event LUEWWD IX: Nailin’ It!, held at Casbah (1007 West Main St in Durham) will feature eight female arm wrestlers including Habitat’s own Rebecca Leonard (aka Reba the Wrench) and Women Build Volunteer Claudia Hines (aka Work It Out Barbie). The doors will open at 7:30pm for pre-game activities, featuring LIV’s food truck, cornhole, and Sam Adams products. General admission costs $5 and VIP tickets cost $25. The event is sponsored by The Boston Beer Company, Casbah, Phunco, and MAYDNEW DJ & Event Planning. The Main Event begins at 9:00pm.
LUEWWD IX aims to make a sizeable dent in the overall fundraising goal of $25,000 toward the 7th Women Build home. If you are interested in sponsoring this event and/or purchasing VIP tickets, please email Jennifer McFarland.
We are looking for volunteers to help with many fun tasks the night of the event. You can check out the open volunteer spots and sign up to volunteer or email Jenn McFarland if you are interested in volunteering. We promise you will have a great time.
You are invited to help us fundraise too! Ask your friends and family to get involved - challenge them to call attention to a great need in Durham and join forces to make a difference!
We hope to see you at the event in September, cheering on one or more of the eight great contestants. If you can't make it to the event thanks in advance for making a donation through this site.
