The Classic City Rollergirls are looking to start their home season off right this June with a win over the rollergirls from Charleston, SC. "Lowcountry Brawl" will pit the High Rollers from the Lowcountry against the Athens rollergirls for the first time. A portion of the proceeds from "Lowcountry Brawl" will help support HandsOn NE Georgia, the CCRG sponsored charity for the 2009 season. HandsOn NE Georgia helps individuals, families and corporate and community groups find flexible volunteer opportunities at various organizations in Athens-Clarke and Oconee Counties. Hands On Northeast Georgia volunteers are at work every day of the year building the community and meeting critical needs in schools, parks, senior homes, food banks, pet shelters, low-income neighborhoods and more. CCRG is proud to sponsor this incredible organization for the entire season.
