Jake's Skate Park Spring Fundraiser

Help Build Jake's Skate Park at Rash Field Park!

The online auction has ended. THANK YOU to all of the artists for donating spectacular pieces of art and THANK YOU to everyone who bid in the auction and/or donated to Jake's Skate Park. We look forward to seeing everyone at the opening of Rash Field Park in October 2021!

Our Spring Fundraiser features over 50 hand painted skateboard decks all available for auction. Professional and amateur artists have generously donated their time to create spectacular pieces of skateboard art that you can bid on! All proceeds from the sales of the skateboard decks will go towards Jake's Skate Park.


Watch the video below for more info about Jake's Skate Park and our fundraiser!



In 2011, Jake Owen was a happy five-year old child playing with his new Super Mario Brothers game he just got for Christmas, when a cell phone distracted driver struck his family car from behind at 62 MPH. His last words were, “Mom, I have 43 lives!”

In his short life, Jake became an avid skateboarder and sports enthusiast. He would take to the streets to show his friends and parents his new skateboarding tricks, or help his friends pick up the sport. To honor Jake’s life and infectious attitude, we’re building a skatepark at the new Rash Field Park and dedicating the park in his name.


Jake’s Skate Park is being designed by Grindline, one of the top concrete skatepark and design companies in the country. The park will feature a large bowl, mini ramps, rails, ledges, and transfers providing a dedicated space that will be accessible for skaters of all ages and abilities.
