How important is the Blading Cup and events like it? Important enough for the blading community to pull together in a show of support and help to raise funds to make the event the best it can be! And sometimes that means having a good seat — the very goal of the Lux Armor Fundraiser that set out to raise funds to pay for bleacher rental at this year’s event. Judging from this photo Jon Julio posted, we’d say at the very least they got a good head start. Whether or not you made it to the Lux Armor compound, enjoy this gallery of Polaroids shot by Jonathan Labez.
Congrats to everyone that made it out for the event, and we look forward to seeing everyone in Santa Ana on November 1 for the Blading Cup!
