50/50 for Ruston

The purpose of this auction is to raise money for a public skatepark in Ruston, LA.

No concrete park exists in a 150 mile radius from Ruston, and kids need a safe place to skate! For this auction we have asked over 150 artists, skaters, and musicians to join our mission to build a concrete park in north central Louisiana. We are on our way to raising $250k, and our city has committed to the rest. We have amazing one of a kind decks from very generous people who believe in our mission. We also have unique one-of-a-kind items from musicians, signed records, books, and more that are available for bid. Many have gotten on board to help us make this a reality, and we hope you’ll get on board, too, by bidding on items in the 50/50 for Ruston auction.
