510 Skateshop's "Treasure Island Fundraiser" Photos

When the recent craze for the Travis Scott Dunks bombarded and shut down their normal lottery for shoe releases, the owners of 510 Skateshop, Jerry and Dandy, came up with an idea to keep the crowd at bay while also doing some good for the local scene. When all was said and done, the Berkeley shop made the single largest cash donation to the Treasure Island DIY—over $30,000! They sold raffle tickets for 20 bucks a pop, and rather than pocketing the extra cash raised, they paid it forward to the park. Want a pair of the hottest kicks? Buy a raffle ticket. Didn't win? Your money still goes to something good. That’s a win-win. After celebrating its third year in operation, the park now has a boost to help with additions and maintenance for at least a few more to come. Check the photos to see how we celebrated with the beautiful beneficiary of these funds. —Dylan Christopher

Thank you again and again, Jerry, Dandy and the rest of the 510 Skateshop crew for trying something outside the box and giving back at the same time. Thank you also to the folks at Nike SB and everyone who participated in the raffle.
