Doin' It For The Kids

Dec 13 2007 / Thursday

For four merry hours yesterday, busloads of kids descended upon the etnies Skatepark for our 4th Annual etnies Holiday Festival. This year's guests were welcomed by etnies and Sole Technology founder/CEO Pierre André Senizergues and Santa Claus, both of whom took to their skateboards and showed the young'uns that they've still got it.

The kids took pics with Santa and then headed to the gift tent, where each one unwrapped their own pair of etnies! “It is really important to me to give those in need throughout the year,” said Pierre. “I will never forget what it was like to be without, and so it will always be a priority to me to help in a meaningful way.” Pierre Claus
Then it was onto the craft booths for coloring, cookie decorating, jewelry making and ornament painting. They also enjoyed demos in the park by their favorite pros including Ryan Sheckler, Kyle Leeper and our girl Lauren Perkins. Also spreading the holiday cheer was Brian Deegan.
