Our co-founder Lewis Rudd has always had a soft spot in his heart for the rollerskating community of Seattle and the surrounding areas. A lifelong skater himself, Lewis takes any chance he can to help celebrate this amazing community that he has been a part of for over thirty years. This huge passion for the skating community (second only to chicken of course) has manifested itself in many ways over the years for Mr. Rudd. Be it skating with his team through the Torchlight Parade with a roller-skate-shaped car or pitching in at the local skate bowl, Lewis is there through it all.
An Event For All Ages
Generations United is a semi-monthly event that does all it can to bring together all generations of roller skaters in the area. With a wide generation gap in its clientele, it can sometimes be difficult to fill the Lynwood Bowl and Skate at any given night. Generations United skate night was created by Mikell Escamilla, a local skater and DJ who wanted to bring some harmony to the local skate scene. His objective is to inspire the youth with a desire to learn more, but more Importantly to keep them out of trouble an invest into something positive. He designed this event to cater not to just one crowd, but to the entire community of skaters. By playing a wide breadth of musical styles throughout the night, Mikell hopes to never alienate one segment of skaters, rather bring them all together under one roof.
Skating And Fried Chicken: A Match Made In Heaven
And who better to help bring these generations together than Ezell’s Chicken? Everyone, from the youngest kid to the oldest adult loves fried chicken. We donate our food to this event to help bring the skate community together, but also to bolster the Lynwood Skate Bowl itself as well. It has always been our mission to help lift up other businesses we believe in. We are so proud to get the chance to add to this event that hinges on uniting people with fun, sport and fried chicken.
