Who We Are

From our core organizers to our stage personalities and our planning committee, LUEWWD is 100% volunteer-run.

Planning Committee
We form a planning committee for each event that consists of representatives from our core organizing group, one or two representatives from our community partner, a couple of stage personalities, and other long-term volunteers interested in event planning.

Core Organizers
May Alexander
Jana Bradley
Kristin Lukasiewicz
LisaCaitlin Perri
Tonya Van Deinse


Stage Personalities
These folks are likely the most recognizable of our LUEWWD team because they are the ones donning the fabulous costumes and working the stage at every event. They are there to keep the event running smoothly, pull money from the crowd, and to keep the wrestling safe.

The Preacher Man – veteran judge and co-emcee
Marilyn Manho – co-emcee
Sassy McKlassy – referee
Lady Trauma – stage bouncer
Fur Pelton John – round boy

Event Volunteers
At every event, we have approximately 15 volunteers tasked with selling merch, working admissions, selling raffle tickets, wrangling contestants, and tending to the ringside seating section.

Contestants and Entourage
Eight people volunteer at each event to don a costume, assume a character and wrestler for a good cause. They also find four friends to be part of their entourage and shake down the crowd for money.
