Aug. 15, 2013 @ 01:35 PM

The League of Upper Extremity Wrestling Women of Durham (LUEWWD - pronounced “lewd”) is partnering with Habitat for Humanity of Durham on Sept. 7 to raise funds toward its 2013 Women Build. The Women Build program empowers women to better their community and be leaders on the construction site by building a home in partnership with a hardworking family.

The event, LUEWWD IX: Nailin’ It!, will take place at the Casbah at 1007 W Main St. It will feature eight new wrestlers, including Big Mama Mayhem, Guillo Tina, Reba the Wrench, Sabrina Zero and Work It Out Barbie. The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. for pre-game activities, featuring the LIV’s food truck, cornhole and Sam Adams products. General admission costs $5 and VIP tickets cost $25. The event is sponsored by The Boston Beer Company, The Casbah, Phunco, and MAYDNEW DJ & Event Planning.

Habitat for Humanity of Durham staff and volunteers, and LUEWWD volunteers will bring both fundraising strength and physical strength to the project.
