Tomorrow we are hosting a fundraiser for Skateistan along with our good friends Hella Vegan Eats in their new home at Classic Cars West in Oakland! The Punk Rock Karaoke Collective has brought us into the fold, so we’ll have all (probably at least 5, there are close to 1,000) of your favorite punk rock songs. We also have an amazing raffle planned with some kick ass loot from Deluxe Skateboard Distro, Timeless Coffee gift card, VSB t-shirts, and more! We’ll have plenty of stickers too! Come hungry. Hella Vegan Eats will be serving up their finest in comfort foods!
Skateistan is a skateboard-focused school that has its humble beginnings on the street of Kabul, Afghanistan. What started as an ad-hock skate session of NGO workers and local kids, blossomed into a full on skate park and education platform. Skateistan provides a creative outlet for young people maligned by war. It also creates a space for kids, traditionally denied an education, to get up to speed in reading and other educational disciplines so they can enroll in public schools. The mission of Skateistan has elevated opportunities especially for young girls.
The efforts of Skateistan have expanded beyond Kabul, so we’re holding this benefit to help them continue to serve kids education and pursuit of fun.
Come on out,
Karaoke start at 7:30pm on Saturday the 18th $5 at the door (no one turned away for lack of funds) All proceeds from the door and raffle go to Skateistan.
