This is the cover of the 2015-2016 CharmTV sponsorship brochure. CharmTV is a local channel all about Baltimore, which explains why I found out about this via that Skatepark of Baltimore advocate Stephanie Murdock. And here I thought Simon Woodstock was living on the west coast.
They’ve got the rest of the month to raise $17,000 (in addition to the $58,000 already raised) and then the Baltimore City Department of Rec and Parks will match their funds with a donation of 75,000. They also received a Tony Hawk Foundation grant, One thing that might help, add a Paypal button. DONATE, for the love of John Waters.
Skatepark of Baltimore is celebrating six years of working towards a public concrete skatepark in Baltimore by means of a benefit concert with skate-rock bands March 26th 2011, 8pm till 11:30pm at Ruintown 2980 Falls Rd. 21211, 8$ cover, 18 and up, BYOB. Mini-ramp Jam, Bands: McRad, Pfisters, the Trowels, Seasons, Shred Crust and the Tics. What else is going in Baltimore? Well, the good news is that infamous Baltimore bully/police officer Joey Williams is still fired after losing an appeal. More SOB in the news after the jump
Congratulation to friend of the site Stephanie Murdock, who was just was named a Baltimore Community Fellow, an award that comes with a hefty grant that she plans on using to help raise more money for Skatepark of Baltimore. This is an interesting twist on skatepark fundraising, based on her plans to develop a new skatepark as a place to positively influence at-risk youth through facilitating positive interactions and mentoring at a new skatepark-based community. At least that’s how I understand it, you can read more at the Baltimore Sun. BTW – The congratulations are for being a friend of the site, not for winning an award…

Looks like the civil lawsuit against the Baltimore cop who has anger management issues when it comes to skateboarders (and RC car enthusiasts…) has been tossed out of court again. I thought the damages they were seeking were ridiculous, but I still think this guy doesn’t serve or protect the best interests of the citizens of Baltimore, even though he has been back on the job for several months.
– Thanks to Doc Murdock for the tip.
