Santa Cruz Design and Innovation Skateboard Panel supports Grind Out Hunger

by admin

Santa Cruz is really starting to press on its organizational efforts and collaborations experts. HA…what I am trying to say is I got the chance to talk about my involvement in the history of Skateboarding in Santa Cruz and luckily all the proceeds from the raffle and door fee was so generously donated to Grind Out Hunger. Tympani roll….the dollar amount for the night was about $250 in cash or as we like to say the equivalent of $$2250 in Second Harvest dollars (every $1 raised equals $9) below is the excerpt from the panel notice that went out. This event was held May 28th 2009.
