Sheck & a fan!
Pierre André Senizergues, owner and CEO of etnies, hosted etnies’ third annual Holiday Festival at the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest and 569 needy kids were given free etnies shoes! The entire Sole Technology Crew along with Santa, Mrs. Claus and actor Joaquin Phoenix came out to ring in the holiday season and hook the kids up with new etnies. The celebration also marked the third anniversary of the skatepark and a generous donation from Pierre Andre of $30,000 to keep the etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest FREE for another year was announced!
“Growing up in Paris, I couldn’t afford to go to a skatepark, said Pierre Andre. “So, I told myself if I ever had the opportunity to provide kids a free environment to skate I would do whatever it takes to support them and skateboarding!”
The following pros came out, skated, signed autographs for the kids and supported the cause:
• etnies: Ryan Sheckler, Ronnie Creager and Lauren Perkins
• éS: Rick McCrank, Justin Eldridge and Danny Garcia
• Emerica: Leo Romero and Austin Stephens
Fun times were had by all and etnies is proud to be a part of something so meaningful to the community and looks forward to the years to come. Check out the Photo Gallery and stay tuned for some video from the day!
