Members of the 100+ Women Who Care Clark County organization presented $2,625 to Lunchmoney Indoor Skatepark founders John Henrikson and Rochelle Ramos on Friday, June 18. 

Lunchmoney opened in Washougal in early 2020 to provide a safe and positive indoor skateboard and scooter environment for people of all ages and abilities.

“Here at the Lunchmoney Indoor Skatepark, we are big believers that skateboarding promotes self-confidence and creativity,” Henrikson said in a news release. 

Through its nonprofit status, Lunchmoney provides scholarship opportunities to need-based skaters. 

“We are committed to providing a space of encouragement through lessons, mentoring, and afterschool programs, and never want to turn anyone away,” Ramos said in the news release. “These funds from the 100 Women group will help us offer more scholarships to those kids who can’t afford our fees.”

Founded in 2018, 100 Women Who Care Clark County has donated more than $100,000 to local nonprofits since its inception.
