Ladies Arm Wrestling – March 30th 2014

LET’S GET READY TO RRRRRUMBLE! 431757_236707826420542_1337624854_n Project HOPE Art and BAAWL (Bay Area Arm Wrestling Ladies) are teaming up to host a raucous performance-based arm wrestling competition that’s guaranteed to be OVER THE TOP. Our fourth tournament will be held Sunday, March 30th in San Francisco at Chez Poulet, and is intended to empower women while raising funds and awareness for disadvantaged communities in Haiti.


HOPE Art Arm Wrestlers are fired-up ladies who toe the line between theatrical antics and hardcore athleticism. Woman-identified wrestlers compete in each brawl. Each wrestler has a persona, bio, theme song, and money-hungry entourage to back them up and collect “bets” from the crowd. 419805_236701109754547_1484873210_n 6360562503_9f4444288d_b Proceeds from the evening will go towards art-based programming (facilitated by HOPE Art) for children in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
