BENEFITING: Ann Arbor Area Community Foundation
Professional skateboarder Andy Macdonald turns 38 today! I set up this fundraiser to honor him on his birthday.
Andy spent some of his youth in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Here's an excerpt from his biography:
"By the summer of '89, when I was sixteen, summers in Michigan were really busy. In between my work hours serving up food at Red Hot Lovers (a hot-dog joint), I spent most of my time skating. Every day I skated the steel, city vert ramp that was thirty-two feet wide and eleven feet high, with a roll-in channel and two extensions. (The steel would get so hot that once we cooked hot dogs on it!) There was also some good pool skating in the area at abandoned hotels. And there was an indoor park called the Skate Escape. But I wanted more. "
As we fundraise to build a world-class skatepark in Ann Arbor ( http://www.a2skatepark.org ), I thought it would be great to honor Andy with donations to the skatepark for his birthday. Once we get this thing built, he'll have a place to skate when he comes and visits ;-)
My goal is to get 38 donations of $38 in honor of Andy's 38th birthday today. Can you give? I know he'd be stoked if you did!
Remember that the Washtenaw County Parks Dept. has pledged $400,000 in matching funds. When you give, your dollars are effectively doubled!
THE FRIENDS OF THE ANN ARBOR SKATEPARK FUND IS ADMINISTERED BY THE ANN ARBOR AREA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION. YOUR GIFT TO THE COMMUNITY FOUNDATION GOES DIRECTLY TO THE ANN ARBOR SKATEPARK FUND AND THE ANN ARBOR SKATEPARK ENDOWMENT FUND. 10% OF EACH GIFT GOES TO THE ENDOWMENT.
Let's get this ball rolling. I'll start!
