The Pittsboro Skate Park committee want to thank everyone who came out and supported our fundraiser at The General Store Cafe this past February. We had a great turnout and an awesome time. All the bands were killer. We definitely brought down the house and showed Pittsboro how to rock! We also want to thank all the local businesses for their donations and support. We raffled tons of prizes and were able to give away a few decks to some local kids who really love to skate.
Those of you who didn’t get to come, don’t worry because we have more events coming. We plan on being out at Pittsboro’s First Sunday Celebration this summer and we have a few more events in the works. As soon as we get the details finalized, we will let you know.
This is shaping up to be an awesome event. The bands playing are Caltrop, Gasoline Stove, Shred Crust, and Blag’ard. Admission is $10 and all proceeds go towards the skatepark. The music will state at 7:30 and go well into the night. We are having a raffle as well as a silent auction, plus tons of giveaways. Here are some highlights of the raffle and silent auction items: two complete Pittsboro Sktaepark skateboards, Backbone complete Longboard, skate lessons, skate sweatshirts, decks, tees, dinners, haircuts, paintings, beach house vacation, Shakori Hills weekend passes, and a pile of other stuff. Looking forward to seeing a great turnout. Thanks in advance for the support.
We are having a four band fundraiser Saturday night February 26th. Caltrop, Spider Bags, Shred Crust, and Gasoline & Stove Pipe are the bands performing. Admission is $10. There will be a raffle and donation jar for anyone feeling extra generous. More details to follow.
The Pittsboro Christmas parade was a rousing occasion. We had an awesome team effort and put forth an excellent float. Several folks in the community have commented on how unique and theme oriented our float was. I am very impressed with the support we currently have and the growing group of people we have working on this project. I am looking forward to our next event, which is a three band fundraiser at the General Store Cafe in downtown Pittsboro on Saturday night, February 26, 2011. Mark your calendars now!
I still have about 30 decks left. The cost of $50 includes the deck and griptape only. I will ship UPS for free. Endless Grind in Raleigh is a good place to get the trucks, wheels, bearings, and hardware, plus they will help you set it up. These boards will make good Christmas gifts.
Skateboards are $50 and include griptape. Will ship UPS at no additional charge. All proceeds will go toward research and development of the future skatepark. We have sold about 25 boards already. If interested in purchasing a skateboard please email Tony at firstname.lastname@example.org
