Stoked Mentoring Presents Stoked Sessions
Tomorrow, one of my favorite charities, Stoked, will be holding a fundraiser in Los Angeles. Stoked Mentoring is a very young and active non-profit youth mentoring organization that was founded by my good friends Steve Larosiliere and Sal Masekela. Based in New York and Los Angeles, Stoked provides innovative mentoring programs exposing "at risk" youth and their mentors to action sports such as skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing. It is a beautiful mix of young people helping other young people and a unique way of exposing some less fortunate kids to fun and exercise and positive adventure they may otherwise never experience in their neighborhoods. My husband and I have been supporters of Stoked's efforts for a few years now and my husband will be donating artwork along with over 200 other artists to be auctioned off tomorrow night with all of the proceeds benefiting Stoked. All auctions begin at just $75! To purchase tickets or if you are interested in learning more about Stoked Mentoring, please visit their website at http://www.eventbee.com/view/stokedsessionsla/events.
