Santa Claus came to the etnies headquarters on his skateboard with Mrs. Claus, his friendly elves and Pierre-André Senizergues in tow to host the 2010 Holiday Festival, complete with a sack full of etnies shoes for kids in need from local organizations — one pair for each kid, which turned out to be 580 pairs donated!
The Holiday Festival included Christmas arts and crafts and a visit from etnies’ pro skateboarders, including Ryan Sheckler, Tyler Bledsoe, Devine Calloway and Kyle Leeper.
The organizations that were able to participate this year at the seventh annual etnies Holiday Festival were Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, Boys and Girls Club, Child Abuse Prevention Center, Healthy Tomorrows, Human Options, Girls & Boys Town of Southern California, New Alternatives, and the South Orange County Family Resource Center.
