Skate & Eat - and Help Save Skateworld!

Did you know that San Diego has only ONE roller rink in the entire city? Skateworld has been keepin' the good times rollin' since 1975 and now they are in danger of being forced to close their rink in Linda Vista. We can't let that happen. Read our fact sheet and find out what's been happening with Skateworld & the City Council! Please come to these fundraising events this Saturday and help us to spread the word about Skateworld! If you can't make it, please tell your friends and help us to Yelp the events too! ALL proceeds from these events goes to the fund to help save Skateworld!
