On Saturday, October 3rd, our friends at Welcome Baby will be the beneficiary of an event hosted by the League of Upper Extremity Wrestling Women of Durham (LUEWWD). The knock-down, drag-out arm wrestling competition will take place at Triangle Brewing Company (918 Pearl Street) at 9:00pm (doors open at 8pm). All the proceeds from ticket sales, donations and bribing the judges will go to their Cribs for Kids program, which provides pack ‘n plays to Durham families in need of a safe place for babies to sleep and shares safe sleep strategies. You can make general donations that will be counted toward the total funds raised, or you may “vote” with your dollars for a specific contestant – including Cribs for Kids Coordinator Cindy Riley a.k.a. Ms. Crib Crusher!
