We hope you made it! We’re pretty sure you did, because Hope & Union was JAM PACKED with skaters, artists, moms, dads, kids, adults, lions, tigers and bears OH MY! This was a spectacular event and you all made it possible. A very special thanks to John, Jess, Liz and the rest of the Hope & Union crew. You helped make Skate and Create 2012 a beautiful occasion. Our volunteers worked tirelessly to put together this event. The artists outdid themselves with some innovative uses of skateboards as paintings, sculptures, chandeliers, room dividers, coffee tables, chairs, and more. Who would have thought a skateboard can become so many different forms of art? A tool used for performance art was transformed by over 100 artists into a piece of fine art. POUR IT NOW thanks the many donors who bid on these wonderful works of art.  We raised more than half of our total fundraising goal – approximately $3200!  The students of CCSMS are so close to skatboarding in PE class next year!
