Skateboarding for the Community

Andy Weiss, the former owner of MRKT Skateshop, wants to give back to the community. He founded a non-profit organization designed to do just that, called Launch: Community Through Skateboarding. Launch uses skateboarding to promote a culture of creativity and self expression for kids, and Weiss is currently trying to raise money to create a headquarters that will house a ramp, a skateboarding history museum and library, and more. Help out this cause by attending the silent auction on August 5 at 222 Walnut Street, and find more information at
