Bethesda Boards -> The Alley @ Bethesda Boards Capital Fund (GoFundMe)

Dear Friends and Supporters,

I am Kaare Wieneke, the proud owner of Bethesda Boards. For over a decade, we have been deeply committed to fostering a vibrant community space focused on skateboarding, music, and the arts. Our vision was born out of a simple wish – to provide a haven for skaters and music lovers in an area where no public skate parks exist. The ramps at our shop have always been open to everyone, free of charge, as a testament to our dedication to this community.

However, our journey to expand and transform into "The Alley" – a new, inclusive venue for music, skateboarding, and art – has proven to be more challenging and costly than initially expected. We find ourselves at a pivotal moment, requiring additional support to bring this vision fully to life.

Your contribution will play a crucial role in helping us navigate the final stages of this transition. Specifically, funds will be allocated towards the completion of architectural, electrical, and plumbing plans, the construction of two new ADA-compliant bathrooms, and ensuring that our venue meets all regulatory approvals to operate safely and effectively.

Bethesda Boards has always been more than just a shop; it's a community where families and skaters from Montgomery County and beyond come together to share their passions. The outpouring of love and generosity we've received over the years has been nothing short of remarkable. Today, we humbly ask for your support to help us continue serving and enriching our community in even more meaningful ways.

By supporting our campaign, you're not just helping build a venue; you're investing in a space where creativity, passion, and community spirit can flourish. Together, we can make "The Alley" a reality and ensure that Bethesda Boards remains a beloved resource for generations to come.

We are immensely grateful for any support you can provide, whether it's through donations, sharing our campaign, or sending words of encouragement. Every bit of help brings us closer to our goal and reinforces the incredible sense of community that has always been at the heart of Bethesda Boards.

Thank you for being a part of our journey and for considering our campaign. Your generosity and support mean the world to us and to the countless individuals who will benefit from "The Alley" at Bethesda Boards.

With heartfelt thanks,

Kaare Wieneke and the Bethesda Boards Team
