Playland Skate Center has been a fixture in the greater Austin, TX community for over 40 years! We recognize that we are a part of the community, and we love to be able to partner with various schools and organizations in an effort to give back.
The Fall semester of 2015 (from August to December) saw a record breaking amount of funds raised through our fundraising initiatives. Specifically, we had the priveledge of partnering with eleven schools throughout Austin. The combined total amount of funds raised through these partnerships and donated totaled $5,128.60!
In addition to partnering with schools for fundraisers, we are also able to help support fundraising initiatives through donations of Free Small Birthday Party Certificates to a variety of schools. Many area schools use these certificates during silent auctions held during fall festivals.

- Get the word out using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and whatever other social channels you are using
