First reporting: On Saturday, March 26th, come out and watch as the Lowcountry HighRollers take on the hard-hitting ladies of the Rogue Rollergirls at Let Them Eat Skate!

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. at The Citadel's McAlister Fieldhouse (171 Moultrie Street), and the bout starts at 6 p.m.

Besides watching the ladies skate it out on the flat track, you can enjoy beer and entertainment from local DJ duo Cassidy & the Kid. Keep partying with the HighRollers afterward at Red’s Ice House at 98 Church Street in Mount Pleasant.

Bout admission is $10 in advance and $12 at the door. Children ten and younger get in free. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics, an international organization that empowers people with intellectual disabilities through sports.
