Stand Up For Skateparks Helps At-Risk Youth

10.15.13

Santa Fe Springs, CA – The sweltering 90 degree heat was no competition for the 10th Annual Tony Hawk Stand Up For Skateparks Benefit.

Over 1,000 attendees showed up for this lavish charity event, presented by SLS Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Saturday, October 5th at the historic Green Acres Estate in Beverly Hills, California.

The family-friendly extravaganza went all out to represent its first decade of raising money to “empower at-risk youth through the creation of free, quality public skateparks in low-income communities across the U.S.,” as stated by the Tony Hawk Foundation website.

Vendor booths outlined the parameter of the Green Acres Estate, allowing guests as young as five to enjoy a hand-dipped ice cream bar by Boardwalk Ice Cream Co., and a hot dog by Hollywood legend Pink’s Hot Dogs. Adults participated in a silent auction, and everyone enjoyed the great performances during the Vert Demo, featuring Tony Hawk and his pals, Andy Macdonald, Tom Schaar, Elliot Sloan, Kevin Staab, Mitchie Brusco, Lizzie Armanto, and BMXer Coco Zurita. The charity event concluded with a special live performance by Grammy nominee Modest Mouse.
