candaid foundation build a board

Sunday, June 9th, 5-7pm // 2363. N. Milwaukee Ave. // 21+ // Free

To celebrate the end of the school year, the Can’d Aid Foundation, along with Emporium Chicago – Arcade Bar Venue & Uprise Skateshop, will be throwing a Sunday party in an effort to build skateboards for local Chicago Public Schools students! For many students this will be their first skateboard, providing a valuable opportunity to get outside and skate!

All necessary materials and tools will be supplied with the help of our amazing sponsors at DLXSF and Vans. All you need to do is show up ready to get your build (and drink!) on!

Participation in the skateboard build is FREE and will be on a first come basis so get here early to secure your board to build! Must be 21+ to enter, no exceptions.

No previous skateboard building experience is necessary, but if you have any, we would love to have you double check everyone’s work at the end of the build session!
