The art show will feature framed prints available for purchase, but has a kicker: you can choose to donate $30 or more to get a blind envelope with a random print inside. The more you donate, the more art you get to take home.

All donations will go towards programs such as The Youth Employment Skateboarding (YES) Teen Leadership Program, and other outreach programs serving high need communities.

Skate Like A Girl is a nonprofit organization that empowers individuals, especially young women, to become strong, confident leaders who promote and implement equity through the vehicle of skateboarding. They currently operate chapters in Seattle, Portland, and the San Francisco Bay Area.
