Go see the Charm City Roller Girls today and help the victim of a hate crime

charm city roller girlsAt today's bout, the Charm City Roller Girls are raising money to help James Privott, the 76-year-old man who was beaten by three white supremacists while fishing earlier this week.

Five percent of the beer sales from the bout will be donated to Privott, as well as any donations from audience members.

The roller girls are also going to give Privott a gift card for $150 to Dick's Sporting Goods so he can buy new fishing equipment ...

"We want to encourage Mr. Privott to continue his sport and we also want to let him know that he has the support of the youth in his community (the 3 attackers were young men - around the same ages as our girls," the roller girls said in a statement.

The bout is 7 p.m. tonight at Du Burns Arena, 1301 S. Ellwood Ave. Admission is $10.
