HOORAY! We have raised over $3,000 for the plaza construction!
Thank you so much for your support! We have now established an account with the Oakland Parks & Rec Foundation that will handle donations for plaza construction going forward.
This site will now be used to raise funds for our weekly Panther Prowl free skate, every Thursday night from 6–9pm at DeFremery Park in West Oakland. If you want to help fund weekly food & drink and volunteer services, please do so here!
If you would like to contribute to the plaza construction specifically, you can do so here: https://www.oaklandparks.org/panther-skate-plaza/
Our mission is to create a safe, inclusive and accessible space for roller skaters of all identities, ages, and abilities that is organized by the community for the youth, while contributing to the rich history of West Oakland and DeFremery Park.
We appreciate any donation you can make to help maintain our weekly skate event. Can't wait to see you out there on Thursday nights!
