Gulf Coast Missfits Hold Fundraiser to Help with Costs

CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Roller derby is making a comeback thanks to some Coastal Bend residents.

"We are out here trying to raise funds for the Ark and also trying to raise stuff to go in the Easter baskets for the kids at the Women's Shelter," Kristy Reid of the Gulf Coast Misfits said.

Members with the Gulf Coast Missfits group hosted a fundraiser Sunday at the Advance Auto Parts store on Staples and Saratoga.

They not only raised money for local non-profits, but they were also promoting their new Roller Derby League aimed at competitive skating in a family fun atmosphere.

The Missfits will play their next league match in late April.
