2008 Mighty Mama Skate-O-Rama announced

The nonprofit Skateboard Moms Inc. is proud to present their fifth annual charity event, the MIGHTY MAMA SKATE-O-RAMA™, Sunday May 11th (Mother’s Day) at the Laguna Niguel skateboard park in Orange County , CA.

The MIGHTY MAMA SKATE-O-RAMA™ is party on wheels for Women Who Dare To Have Fun. The event features skateboarding women of all ages and abilities, in a non-competitive, family-friendly atmosphere. You don’t have to be a “mom” to participate–all women are welcome, along with any and all supporters, male or female.

The action begins at 10 am, with introduction of the Skate Moms at 11 am. As always, this year’s event will feature another Rockin’ Raffle of great skate gear and other cool goods with proceeds benefitting La Habra-based Rosie’s Garage, an afterschool program for kids in need.

This year’s Official Mighty Mama Honoree is 1970s freestyle legend Ellen Oneal, who will be present at the event! Click below to see her featured in a vintage Skateboarder magazine’s “Who’s Hot!” feature:

The Skateboard Moms and the MIGHTY MAMA SKATE-O-RAMA™ have been featured in over 200 media outlets including Good Morning America, The Early Show, ESPN2, Fuel TV, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, National Public Radio, BBC Radio and many more.

The 20,000-square foot Laguna Niguel skateboard park is located at 27745 Alicia Parkway in Laguna Niguel , CA . The skatepark charges a $10 daily fee (or $60 for an annual pass) and requires full safety gear (knee pads, elbow pads, helmet) and a signed liability waiver.
