Oasis Skateboard Factory Live Auction
April 30, 2019 - 2:19pm
Roarockit, The Bait Shop and CJ’s SKATEPARK are proud to support the Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF) by hosting a live auction fundraising event at CJ’s SKATEPARK on May 9th!
The Oasis Skateboard Factory is an award-winning TDSB alternative high school program where at-risk youth earn credits and graduate by building and selling skateboards and running a small design business. For Oasis Skateboard Factory’s 10 year anniversary, students were partnered with professional artists to create a unique rolling work of art. From adding illustrations and paintings to creating sculptures from cut up decks, OSF students and their artist collaborators go beyond the skateboard form and into the realm of high art.
These boards will be on display at CJ’s SKATEPARK from April 16th – May 9th. Come by the skatepark and check them out in person!
We would like to invite you to support the unique programming at OSF by bidding on these unique pieces of art. Below are the details of how you can bid on the art pieces created by OSF.
The unique art pieces are available for online bidding on the JBM auction site!
View and bid on these boards by accessing the following link: https://www.jbmauctionservices.com/online-auctions/
The online bidding will end at 11:59pm on May 7th.
On May 9th at 7pm, the bidding will continue with a LIVE auction event hosted on the 2nd floor Tech Deck at CJ’s SKATEPARK! All boards will be at the skatepark for you to view. We will also have acash bar serving beer and wine. The bidding will continue from where the online auction left off. Jay Mandarino will be donating his time as the live entertainment & auctioneer extraordinaire for the fourth consecutive year.
Greg Rodriguez, Co-Owner of The Baitshop, will also be at this event where he will be printing and selling special limited edition T-shirts commemorating the 10th Anniversary of Oasis Skateboard Factory! Proceeds from the sale of these shirts will go towards OSF programming.
This will definitely be a unique experience at CJ’s SKATEPARK that you won’t want to miss!
Join us in supporting this great cause on May 9th!
