The Unity Skatepark is fundraising for the last final stretch of the project. Over the course of fundraising, there have been some successful events that helped bring in dollars along with the donations. The biggest fundraiser was the popular 623opoly Game Project that raised over $14,000 for Unity Skate Park.
As the project got into it’s second phase, it ran into some unexpected costs.
