Locals are working to help raise $40,000 to improve the city of Atascadero’s skate park.
“The present facility is not insulated and is subject to uncomfortable temperatures in the cold winters and hot summers,” city recreation supervisor Paula Anton said.
To help, a fundraising task force is working with the city to add insulation to the roof and exterior walls of the metal building. The group has raised $6,000 as of Thursday, Anton said.
The next community fundraiser is planned for 6 to 9 p.m. Nov. 16 at the Colony Park Community Center, 5599 Traffic Way. The event will include a spaghetti dinner, raffle, entertainment, silent auction and beer and wine sales, according to a city press release.
At the door, tickets are $20 for adults $5 for children age 13 and younger.
Adults can save $5 off their tickets by buying them at a pre-sale through Nov. 12 at the A-Town Park and the Colony Park Community Center.
Those who would like to donate funds to the project or prizes to the raffle can call A-Town Park at 461-7606.
