50 artists. 50 skateboards. All for a great cause.
This summer, Bruno B. Art Collectif (BBAC) is holding a fundraising event for the Austen Everett Foundation (AEF), a local non-profit organization that empowers kids in their fight against cancer by making them Honorary Team Captain of a pro or college sports team. Seattle team partners include the Seahawks, Mariners, and Sounders as well as teams from the UW and SPU, and there are also team partners in other locations including Portland, the Bay Area, LA, Minnesota, Miami and Maine.
For this fundraiser, we solicited 50 artists to make art with a skateboard deck, supplied by Bruno B. Art Collectif and donated by EVO's All Together Skatepark, which we will sell at the event. 50% goes to AEF, and 50% is split—you guessed it…50/50—between the artist and Bruno B. Art Collectif. BBAC is donating 100% of their profits to the foundation, as will Lagunitas Brewing Company, where this awesome event will be held. Artists are also welcome to choose to donate their part to the foundation.
The event will be at Lagunitas Seattle Tap Room and Beer Sanctuary in Ballard on Monday, July 29, 2019, 5:30pm-8:30pm. We are planning to have live music and hoping to have some skateboard demos, possibly featuring some local athletes. And of course Lagunitas amazing craft beer will be on tap, turning beer into money for the cause!
Be sure to watch the video on the AEF website to learn more about Austen and this incredible foundation.
WE HOPE YOU’LL JOIN US!
