Tis the season of goodwill and Etnies played its part on Friday by hosting its ninth annual holiday festival at the Etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest in California. Skateboarding owner and CEO Pierre-Andre Senizergues, along with team riders Nick Garcia, David Reyes, Aidan Campbell, Alex Midler and Chris Del Moro, handed out 360 pairs of shoes to children in need from various Orange County non-profits. And imagine the kids’ surprise when Santa Claus decided to show off his impressive boarding skills.
Etnies skateboarding owner and CEO Pierre-Andre Senizergues took to the streets last Friday for the Los Angeles Misson‘s annual Easter celebration, handing out 2,000 pairs of new shoes to the city’s homeless population. Joined by filmmaker Mike Manzoori, Senizergues showed how the simple gesture of giving can change thousands of lives.
