COPLEY — The Akron Women’s Rugby Team will host its eighth annual Prom on the Pitch May 17. Prom on the Pitch is an annual fundraiser for the Battered Women’s Shelter (BWS) of Summit and Medina Counties. The matches will kick off at 11 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. at the Akron Rugby Pitch, 1763 Wadsworth Road. Visit www.akronrugby.com/pitch.html for directions. New this year will be three women’s teams playing a round robin tournament along with an appearance from the Akron Men’s Rugby Team. The Women’s Rugby Team will play in formal wear or “prom” dresses. The teams will be raising funds and donated items for the shelter throughout the game. Along with monetary donations or gift cards, the shelter is seeking the following gently used or unopened items: boxed food, cleaning and paper products, trash bags, powdered laundry detergent, household items (coffeemakers, silverware, plates, toasters and microwaves), maternity clothes, linens, blankets and comforters, towels, suitcases, backpacks, over-the-counter medication (child and adult) and new baby items (bottles, diapers, wipes, etc.).

The Stone Pelican Food Truck will be on-site, donating a portion of its sales to the BWS. All are welcome at the social after the last match.
