Check Out The Spring Metamorphosis Event and Silent Auction

Metamorphosis, Raising funds for Joannes House in AjaxSpring is surely upon us, and many will look to clean or renew interest in activities. I often come across many great causes and worthy charities, but have never written about it. Today is a little different, my good friend Brian Vince of Titan Tattoo Supply is running a wonderful art show and sale in Oshawa. Read on for more details on the event.

Spring is a good time to help others too. Metamorphosis will raise funds for Joanne’s House; a local safe shelter for youth. They short term housing for youth aged 16 to 24 in Durham region. As a member (and Big) of Big Brothers and Sisters myself, causes that assist struggling youth are important to me. Everyone deserves a helping hand, more so for young people struggling to find a place or making ends meet.

Skateboard Deck designed by Jesse OwenI’m not a boarder, but some of these designs are incredible. You’ll see boards designed by tattoo artists like Mike Gooley, London Slade, Kevin Cayley to name a few. Many of the full decks are on display at the Metamorphosis Facebook event, they’re worth a look.

I plan to attend on the 29th, so if you’d like to stop in and chat, by all means. This is a great chance to meet and hear some of your ideas. Stop by and say hello. I’ll be the tall guy who looks like a blogger. Wait, what does a blogger look like?

A worthy cause, and a great time. Do yourself a favor, head out to Oshawa and go check it out; even bid on one of the boards. Spring Metamorphosis runs March 24th to the 29th at The Vault – 19 Simcoe Street North in Oshawa, Ontario. The show is open each day 10am to 9pm, 10pm on Saturday.

Update: If you’re interested, many of the boards have been posted online, and bids can be placed. Be sure to check out the boards created by the kids Joanne’s House. Great Work.
