Gear up for the Boston Arm Wrestling Dames 3rd Wrasslin Championship Throw-down.
What is BAWD? We’re a fired-up group of strong women wrestling for a cause. This October 24, 8 women will duke it out with their deltoids to benefit Transition House, which has been helping get victims of abuse back on their feet for almost 40 years.
This isn’t your traditional arm wrestling match. This is art, theatre, magic. Screaming, dancing, yodeling. Pushups. Anything goes, and it all goes to charity.
The audience doesn’t just sit and watch, they participate. Betting on contestants, and bribing judges for re-matches when their selected wrestlers may wind up losing. At the end of the night there will be prizes for the champion, the crowd favorite, the most enthusiastic and even the runner up.
There will also be a special intermission show by Rogue Burlesque.
Whether or not you know the wrestlers, this will be a night to remember.
Skimpy unitards are optional. BAWDy attitudes are required.
About BAWD: The Boston Arm Wrestling Dames were established in 2011 as one of nearly two-dozen ladies arm wrestling leagues across the country. The idea sprang from a joke between friends in Charlottesville, VA, and has since captured the attention of the New York Times, Washington Post, the Guardian, NPR and Penthouse, to name a few.
Since its inception BAWD has raised funds to support worthy charities in Boston including the Elizabeth Stone House and Web of Benefit.
