Lauren Perkins was ripping the concrete, handing out free shoes and signing autographs at the Etnies Annual Holiday Festival last Friday at the Etnies Skatepark of Lake Forest. Every year Etnies invite needy kids to the event who get to meet the pro-riders and Santa, watch the pros shred the park and get free shoes. This year over 600 kids showed up from all across Orange County: from organizations like Orangewood Children’s Foundation, New Alternatives and Big Brothers Big Sisters. Etnies has hosted the event for the past 5 years and handed out over 2500 pairs of shoes to children in need. That’s the holiday spirit!
