When we last discussed, we reported that the Robin Williams signed skateboard deck up for auction as part of the 10th and final year of Skateraid, already had an impressive bid of $2,000.
Well, within a day or so of that report, the bid jumped up to an astonishing $11,000! Great news for a great cause.
Which elegantly transitions to the next topic – the 10th and final Skateraid is this Sunday from 2p-7p in the parking lot behind East Decatur Station! Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. There will be art, bands, food and drink, merch, a scavenger hunt for kids and of course, skateboarding.
Huge congrats and heartfelt thanks to all the families and volunteers who have made this event possible over the last decade, honoring the life of Ian Wochaz, who died of brain cancer back in 2005, and raising funds to support families who are dealing with pediatric cancer.
