Pure Pro Wrestling will hold a big fundraising show for the Pittsylvania County SPCA in Chatham at the fire department on Saturday, Sept. 21. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the SPCA who will get all concession sales for some good tasting food including their delicious hot dogs.
There is a 7:30 bell time with doors opening at 6:30. A variety of vendor booths will be set up by the wrestlers who will sign autographs and take pictures with fans.
This is the third benefit PPW has done for the Pittsylvania County SPCA. One popular thing they’ve conducted at the two previous shows is auctioning off a t-shirt signed by all of the wrestlers on the show that night.
Stars on the Chatham show who grew up in that area include Ric Kelly and Court Montgomery.
Keith Barksdale out of Danville is the PPW Commissioner who calls the shots and makes the matches.
When looking back on his career in pro wrestling, Jimi Love shares, “It’s kept me going and is all I really know! I can remember going to shows in Greensboro when I was eight or nine years old. Like many others, I dreamed about being a wrestler and jumped at it when I got the opportunity.”
