Etnies has been a company that, since its inception, has never forgotten the ethos that being part of the skateboard community is a privilege and giving back is not only a moral imperative, it is part of our DNA. Pierre-André Senizergues, founder of Etnies, will again this year be doing just that at the Etnies Skate Park of Lake Forest where hundreds of underprivileged children will feel privileged and loved by the kindness of giving. Thank to all at Etnies for caring about humanity.
The 2014 Etnies Holiday Festival is scheduled for Friday, December 12, 2014 at 1 p.m. at the Etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest. Hundreds of underprivileged children will spend the afternoon with Santa, enjoy the games/crafts festival area, watch the Etnies skate team and be gifted a brand new pair of Etnies. Come skate with Ryan Sheckler, Julian Davidson, David Reyes, Aidan Campbell and Chris Joslin.
ETNIES OPENS OFFICE UP TO HUNDREDS OF KIDS IN NEED
etnies Annual Holiday Festivals have Given More Than 4,000 Shoes to Kids Over the Last Ten Years
December 12, 2014 (Lake Forest, CA) – Rather than cancel its annual Holiday Festival due to the rain, Pierre-Andre and the etnies team opened up the offices today to about 300 local kids to celebrate the season. This Holiday Festival started in 2004, and over the last decade more than 4,000 pairs of shoes have been given to kids in need at the annual event. During today’s festivities, every kid was given a new pair of etnies shoes, a chance to meet the etnies team, take pictures with Santa and play games.
“There’s nothing more meaningful to me than seeing the smile on a child’s face because they received a new pair of etnies shoes,” says Pierre-Andre Senizergues, owner and CEO of etnies. “I’m thrilled that for the past ten years, I’ve been able to do this with my team and bring something extra special to kids during this Christmas season.”
etnies would like to give a special thanks to ChocXO Coffee and Cacao, WSS and all the non-profit organizations that shared in the season of giving and helped make this event possible.
