Maloof Money Cup Hosts Christmas Dinner at SA Skatepark

On December 23rd, the Maloof Family, Maloof Money Cup staff, and members of the NCG hosted over 160 youth and their families from the skateboarding community in Kimberley and the surrounding township at the Maloof Cup skate plaza in Kimberley South Africa. "It was a great opportunity for us to give back, that’s what Skateboarding for Hope is.” said Joe Maloof, owner of Maloof Money Cup.

A Christmas dinner, gifts and prizes were awarded throughout the evening as musical groups performed. "The skate park in Kimberley has become an example to Kimberley and the world on how a private public partnership can work to the benefit of the community, we are extremely proud of this partnership. Not only has it brought worldwide attention to Kimberley to the extent that this great city has never seen before but the park has become a community gathering spot for activities like this dinner. This really has a positive meaning that Kimberley can be proud of.
I have to credit great vision to the leadership of the Northern Cape. Vision for the community, is about looking into the future and creating a plan that helps the community grow over the next 5 to 10 years and the NCG has really done that. This is not just an event that comes and goes, it’s about building a lasting legacy that benefits the community and it has worked beyond all of our dreams.” - Joe Maloof

I want to give special thanks to Adela and Ebrahim (Braimpie) Adams for organizing and give their time to see this project work, the Adam's family are heavily involved in the community and we are proud to call them friends.

We are just so thankful to Kimberley and the community that this was one of many tokens of our appreciation.
