Help Us Save Our Skating Rink

Campaign Created by: SkyVue Skateland

The funds from this campaign will be received by Denise Watkins.

Goal : USD $150,000
Raised : USD $ 12,845

Hello friends, Denise here from Sky-Vue Skateland in Rocky Mount NC. I have the pleasure of entertaining families, tweens, and teens at my skating rink every weekend. My parents built the rink in 1958. I came back in 1983 to help with the operations because they were getting older. It has been a fun and rewarding experience to have families returning generation after generation to skate with us.


We suspended our skating sessions beginning February 2022 because our skating surface needed repair. Upon examining the support system we found an issue with moisture in the crawl space. Therefore we have 2 issues that need to be resolved before we can reopen for skating. 


We have a contractor and a plan. But the hurdle is the cost of $150,000.00. We have taken your suggestions to do a fundraiser. 


That amount seems out of reach but we believe it will be possible from your generous donations. Many of you have told us how much you appreciate our rink because we provide a safe place for the youth to gather with their friends. Our rink reflects the need of every community to have safe places of entertainment for youth. We are asking you to please contribute what you can so that we can get Sky-Vue Skateland open and skating again. Every donation of any amount will count and help us reach our goal. Would you also share this need with three friends, businesses, organizations, or your church?


We are eager to see this God-size project come to life. Our contractor is a former skater who is excited to repair the floor and get children and families skating again. We thank you for trusting us to provide wholesome family entertainment. We want to pass our love of skating to the next generation and help them create memories that last a lifetime.


Please check our website, www.skyvueskateland.com for details of thank you gifts. Be sure to monitor our progress on our Facebook and Instagram pages.


Once the work is complete we look forward to hosting a grand reopening! You’re all invited! Thank you so much for your support.

Hello Friends, Our donations have moved to over $20,000.00. We have started on the repair. We have been blessed with what we initially thought was a huge obstacle to be reduced to a much simpler issue and repair. We believe we are moving along well. We hope to be able to reopen soon. Thank you for your prayers and financial support. You make all of this possible for us to achieve. We appreciate you! Mrs. Denise

Did you see our number for the end of the day for March 23, $7040.00?

God is good. We stepped out on faith and are trusting God (Jehovah Jireh) to provide the money to complete this project so we can reopen.

Please continue to share our need on social media. Another effective way is to reach out to 3 friends and ask them to make a donation. I am available to make a presentation to a group if you know a group interested in supporting young people.

Thank you for your prayers and donations. Every donation counts and it all adds up.

Thank you so much for supporting our fundraising efforts to repair our skating floor.

No donation is too small and every one counts!

As of 3 pm on Saturday, March 19 we have received a total of $4540.00 from 22 donors. I think that is outstanding. Your donations mean so much to us.

Please continue to share our campaign on your social media. We know not everyone sees our posts. I believe when people see it from multiple folks it has an impact.

Thank you so much for your donation and support.
