skate-aid-matinée 2021

On Sunday (July 4, 2021) it was "celebrate and promote" time again. Our founder and instigator Titus Dittmann had invited to the skate-aid-matinee in his backyard.
Unlike the skate-aid-night, our annual charity gala at the Skaters Palace, our skate-aid family met for the first time exclusively and without the press present for a summer charity event in Münster-Handorf. The idea to organize an art happening in the summer months for the benefit of skate-aid was already on Titus' mind for a long time. The Corona-related cancellation of the skate-aid-night 2020 prompted him to tackle the idea of a modernly interpreted matinee under the motto "Art, Cars and Trash!" this year.
Amongst the approximately 150 guests – were the Federal Minister for the Environment Svenja Schulze and Member of the Bundestag Karlheinz Busen as well as celebrities such as André Gatzke, Lisa Feller, Steffi Stephan, Adam Riese, Toto Heim, Simon Gosejohann, Wolfgang Hölker and Siggi Spiegelburg. The family concept was without exception well received. The press was deliberately only called in afterwards so that the celebrities could spend a relaxed and great afternoon with their kids.  Everyone was stoked about the original and stylish flair of the event.
Arranged in the form of an art walk through the garden, which impressed many of the guests. They could look at works by spray-artist Dennis Klapschus and “old master” Otmar Alt, as well as discover works by up-and-coming artists such as Tiziano Lucchese and Nikolai Kampen.
A surprise for many: Titus, who emphasized in his speech to the guests how much he’s passionate about art and design, also exhibited some of his own works. The charity-clou: The guests could "donate the art” in favor of skate-aid.
In our skate-aid info tent, we presented all our projects which had to be put on hold on and off during the Corona pandemic.
Throughout the day, the guests enjoyed culinary and musical delights, with the sounds of Vanessa van de Forst, Nasila & the Taxi Band and the Milestones Jazzband from a pyramid sculpture built by Titus himself.
 
A big thank you to all our supporters and friends!
