I along with my boys at Kettle Art have brand new, never before seen custom skate decks for this show. I'll be there ready to party and I live in the building so Keep an eye on me. Anyway, Guapo Skateboards presents an evening of spectacular art, style, skateboarding, and infinite fun benefiting Texas Scottish Rite Hospital For Children, St.Philips School & Community Center, and The Dallas Arts Community.
The evening will begin with Cocktails & Hors-d'oeuvres and showcase 120 skateboards designed/painted by either a celebrity artist, a St.Philips student, a graphic designer, or a local artist. Throughout the evening guests will have the opportunity to bid on and purchase their favorite artist’s skateboard & other auction items.
The evenings proceeds will help support the Texas Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital. TSRHC treats Texas children with orthopedic conditions, such as scoliosis, clubfoot, hand disorders, hip disorders and limb length differences, as well as certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders, such as dyslexia.
Following the Art Auction, the winning student design from the St.Philips School & Community Center will be announced and receive “The Art of Skateboarding” 2008 Award. The winner will also receive a US savings bond to use towards their college fund.
The evenings speakers will be Founder of Guapo Skateboards Al Coker and Jon Comer Honorary Chairman/Professional Skateboarder.
