The Printery Foundation held a skate party Saturday evening at the Printery building in Atascadero. The fundraiser was held in conjunction with Questers, a group committed to preserving historic buildings in California. The California Questers group has named saving the Printery it’s statewide project.
While skaters enjoyed jumps and other obstacles on Olmeda avenue, attendees placed bids on donations at a silent auction in the Printery building parking lot. A barbecue also raised money for the foundation.
The Printery building was built one hundred years ago by Atascadero founder E.G. Lewis. The building was used to print publications for Sunset Magazine and other major newspapers and magazines.
The Printery Foundation will host a talent show at the Printery on September 10th.
