Bar Associations Host Skate Party to Help Kids of Incarcerated Parents

11/28/07

The D. Augustus Straker Bar Association, The Wolverine Bar, and the State Bar of Michigan Young Lawyers Section are joining forces to raise funds for children of incarcerated parents by hosting an Old School Skate Party on Thursday, Dec. 27.

The event, which benefits Save Kids of Incarcerated Parents (SKIP), will be held from 9 p.m.-1 a.m. at the Bonaventure Skating Rink, located in Farmington at 24505 Halsted. The $20 admission fee, which is tax deductible, includes skate rental and a free old-school music CD. In addition to skating, participants will also have an opportunity to dance and win a karaoke machine. All proceeds raised will go directly to SKIP.

"SKIP is an organization committed to providing positive experiences to Detroit elementary schoolchildren who have a parent who is or has been incarcerated, and provides a safe haven for them to discuss their experiences," said event chair Angelique Strong Marks.

"SKIP is a grassroots organization that is truly changing the lives of many who might be otherwise disillusioned with society," said Solon Phillips, a member of the State Bar of Michigan Young Lawyers Executive Council and the D. Augustus Straker board of directors who has worked with the SKIP program for several years. "I encourage all attorneys to come to the event with friends."
