Treacherous Tutu wins the match!

Swooping into the match like a kamikaze swan, the Treacherous Tutu triumphed over newcomer Paula Bunyan to win the bout!

Congrats Tutu! And thanks to Jason Dixson from Brightest Young Things for the photos. There are plenty more to come.

But even better news, D/CLAW raised more than $6,100 last night for Miriam's Kitchen! That translates into more than 6,000 meals that this charity will now be able to serve!
All money raised came directly from entry fees for the match, bets placed on the eight wrestlers, and a few special auctions - including a date with three lovely swans from Tutu's gaggle that went for $300 and a binder full of D/CLAW women that went for $600!
At the end of the night, every D/CLAW wrestler in the house autographed their photo in the binder for the lucky winner. What a keepsake!

Oct. 19 bout at Penn Social

The D.C. Lady Arm Wrestler's fall bout is here and we've got a whole new crop of wrestlers for you!

And a whole new venue!

A few things have changed, but the basic D/CLAW principle remains the same.
All proceeds from the night, including $5 entry fees and all bets will benefit a local charity. This time it's Miriam's Kitchen, a non-profit committed to ending chronic homelessness in DC by creating meaningful connections with chronically homeless individuals, placing them in permanent supportive housing, and ensuring they have the necessary support to remain in housing.

So join D/CLAW on Friday Oct. 19 at Penn Social bar for a cornucopia of smackdown!
The bar will be open for happy hour, but the smackdowns will commence at 8 pm.
