On Saturday, Dec. 14, Skateland hosted an event titled “SKATACULAR” to raise money for Skateland Clubhouse and Brick City Cheer.
Skateland Clubhouse is an after school program that offers tutoring and different programs to Skateland’s “Skateguards & Ambassadors,” which ranges from ages 8-18. The group was trying to raise money to help provide snacks and help with transportation costs.
Brick City Cheer is a youth led cheer program for youth ages 9-14 that teaches cheers, dance drills and some tumbling. Brick City Cheer is trying to raise money for uniforms.
The event also featured performances by Brick City Cheer, Kiyana Fernandez, Jaidyn and Lilly Trujillo, Joey Cordova, Kylier Dalsimer, Marilyn Monroe Tribute Artist Jaime Maez, tribute artist Paul Hurtado as Elvis and The Freedom Road Band.
Said organizers, “How could any kid have a ‘Blue Christmas’ when Elvis was handing out cool glasses, guitars and an autographed door to success? We all enjoyed and feasted on all the delicious baked goods that were donated by the community. (As is said at Skateland) ‘Let the good times roll!’”
