Shake Your Groove Thing!

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Roller Disco fundraiser on March 14th! We had a blast!

Thanks to the Entertainment Group and Sofa King Fast for providing the mood with the sweet disco sounds of the 70s. The costumes you all put together were amazing and one lucky attendee was rewarded for their costume with two tickets to Marylin Manson!

Rated PG's photographer Herb Martin was there too and took some amazing shots of the night! Check out his other Rated PG photos at http://www.pbase.com/pgonline/pgrollergirls
