Dallas Elite — after going undefeated in regular season play for two consecutive seasons — defeated the Central Cal War Angels, 34-28, to win the Women’s Football Alliance’s Division 1 American Conference championship on July 9.
Now Elite will face the DC Divas on Saturday, July 23, in Pittsburgh for the WFL Division 1 National Championship. And you can help them get there.
The team, co-owned and coached by O.J. Jenkins, is raising money this week to pay for the trip. You can contribute in one of two ways: through the GoFundMe page here, or by having drinks and a delicious appetizer tonight (Monday, July 18) at La Comida Mexican Kitchen and Cocktails.
From 6-10 p.m., La Comida, at 5100 Belt Line, Ste. 796, is offer the Elite Championship Special, which includes two drinks — house frozen Rita, rocks, the signature flamingo, red wine, white wine, and/or beer — and one house appetizer for only $12.
This is a one-night-only, cash-only special offer, and proceeds will help pay the team’s way to Pittsburgh. AND, hairstylist Ari Darocy has said she will be at La Comdia tonight, selling gift certificates for haircuts, and half of all her proceeds from that effort will go to Dallas Elite, too.
If you can’t make it out to La Comida tonight — or even if you can, and just want to help some more — you can donate to the team’s travel fund on the Dallas Elite GoFundMe page. These ladies have played hard and played well all season. Let’s show them Dallas supports them, and get them to Pittsburgh where they can beat the Divas.
