All proceeds go to support Franklin’s Paine Skatepark Fund’s work in elevating the status of skateboarding in Philadelphia, as well as providing vibrant public space and educational programming opportunities to community youth.

Due to the centrality of the site and the innovative design, this project has the potential to attract visitors and events both locally and internationally and will provide much needed designate skate space for the growing number of skateboarders in the region.
