The turn-out was amazing, the skating was ridiculous, and the overall vibe was super positive and fun. You simply can’t beat 3 hours of energized shredding with NYC’s finest pros, ams and legends, along with a a huge product toss and Best Trick contest; which Andre Beverley won – Congrats!
Once the skate jam was a wrap, the 21+ crowd flocked to The Blind Barber on NYC’s Lower East Side for “Harold’s Birthday Bash” which featured drink specials, plenty of good times and beats by DJ Smoke L.E.S. and DJ Hiro.
All donations and proceeds raised during both events will help the HHF with its on-going mission of using skateboarding as a vehicle to provide inner-city youth with valuable life experiences that nurture individual creativity, resourcefulness and the development of life skills.
