Community comes out strong at AV Skatepark Fall Fling Fundraiser

Sep 16, 2023

Lots of love and over $18,000 raised

On September 16th, the AV Skatepark Project hosted its first Fall Fling community fundraising event at the Anderson Valley Brewing Company -- and it was a smash success!

Through entry ticket sales, donated proceeds from food and beverage sales, raffle ticket sales, silent auction purchases, live auction purchases and donations, the event raised $18,000 for the AV Skatepark Project.

In addition to being a successful fundraiser, the event generated a beautiful sense of cross-generational community connection and unity around the mission to improve recreation resources for AV youth. Thank you to everyone who took the time to come out!


This event would not have been possible without the time and energy of many individuals who helped to make this event happen. We want to recognize and give thanks to all of you out there!

Special thanks

A special thanks to:

  • Casandra Klein (of Stoney Bottom Vacation Rentals) who donated her expertise and a great deal of time and energy (over many months) to produce and coordinate this event for us.

  • Assemblymember Jim Wood who took the time to join us (after a grueling closing week of session) to present a $250,000 check to the AV Skatepark Project, secured through his commitment to support AV youth.

The Bands

Thank you to the members of each of these bands for generously donating your time and talent to make this event extra special and fun.

Over forty businesses -- mostly from throughout Mendocino County -- have donated resources to support the event. This event would not be possible without the generous support of these businesses, via donated items for the raffle and live auction, in-kind donations (such as facility use, table rental and graphic design) and donated proceeds from sales at the event. THANK YOU to this wonderful community for coming forward to support the cause!
