The Matt Gray Memorial is a celebration of life and community love. The event is the only one of its kind that mixes skating and surfing into one contest. The skate event was held on Friday, April 11th at the Atlantic Beach Skate Park and drew more than 30 registered skaters and over 200 spectators. With a great community atmosphere, skaters from all over the beach ranging from 6 years old to 40 competed in front of a huge crowd that cheered them on all night. The surf contest was held at 19th Street in Atlantic Beach on Saturday, April 12th. The entire event brought in close to $4,000 which was raised through the events entry fee and money raised through the raffle. All proceeds go towards a scholarship in Matt Gray’s honor to a Senior at Fletcher High School. Last year, Marshall LaFrance and Jake McGuire each won $1,500 scholarships for their future college endeavors. ALL PHOTOS: JIM WALKER
