but instead, one of the events that we are supporting this season has to do with women and powerful ones at that! My friend, Jen Hoyt Tidwell, started CLAW, Charlottesville Lady Arm Wrestlers, a few years ago and look at it now! It has gone all over the country. She is now the executive of a collective of women arm wrestling leagues that raise money for charity and provide spectacular entertainment for all. This weekend The Hip Joint has helped to sponsor the first national competition right here in Charlottesville. In fact, it is taking place tomorrow evening across the street from us at the Jefferson Theater. I wish that I had had more time to write about this sooner. Go check it out if you can!!!!!
*****Here is a photo from a party that I threw for a mutual friend a few years ago….Jen had been talking about their ideas about a “lady arm wrestling group”….. and I found this photo of her trying to explain her ideas in our dance studio….******* Yea CLAW!
Some of the other events and organizations that The Hip Joint has supported this season are:
Live Arts and the summer musical this year, Hairspray http://www.livearts.org/
We also recently became members of The Piedmont Council for the Arts.
We love to support local art and artists! Enjoy the summer everyone! It is definitely here!
