The Element Club Bar and Grill raised over $3,600 at their recent Bro Hymn 2 NO RULZ indoor skateboarding fundraiser.

The fundraiser, which took place on June 9, saw the club build a half-pipe right on the dance floor and featured many of the top skateboarders in the West Kootenay and even some pros work the pipe.

The money raised was presented to Sk8Shoes4Shoes president Justin Evin. Sk8Shoes4Kids provides shoes and other gear to underprivileged youth in the West Kootenay area.
