The 8th annual Mighty Mama Skate-O-Rama will take place at Laguna Niguel skatepark on Mothers Day, Sunday May 8th, with action starting at 10 am. Full details from the website are as follows:
The official “honoree” this year is 1970s skateboard star Ellen Berryman, who will be in attendance and might recreate some of her cool moves! Our groovy event poster was designed by Patricia Kavanaugh featuring a photo of Ellen by Warren Bolster, courtesy Concrete Wave Editions. This year’s event will feature both our Rockin’ Raffle plus an online silent auction of amazing goods. Proceeds again go to Friends of Children and Literature, aka FOCAL, the Downtown LA-based grassroots group that brings the magic of reading to children in Los Angeles. This non-competitive event is open to all skateboarding women–both moms and non-moms (aka the “Sisters of Shred”). Supportive men are welcome to join in the fun, but please guys, think “Ladies First” on our very special day!
