Beach Brawl Sk8r Dolls Donates to TSIC Scholarship Program

The Beach Brawl Sk8r Dolls recently made a generous donation to the Take Stock in Children Scholarship Program of the Okaloosa Public Schools Foundation.  The Beach Brawl Sk8r Dolls team was founded in 2008 as the first ever Women’s Flat Track Roller Derby Team in the Fort Walton Beach/Destin area.  The team is a group of athletic ladies who strive to change the world through giving back to the local community and charities in need.  Each year, the Beach Brawl Sk8r Dolls team donates many labor hours to local charities as well as a percentage of admission fees from their home bouts.  Bouts are held at the Northwest Florida Fairgrounds, and their schedule is posted on their web site at www.beachbrawlsk8rdolls.com. They are proud members of the Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce and of the Women’s Flat Track Derby Association.
