Amazing charity event to launch a super cool game for an awesome cause. Tony Hawk: SHRED Presents Stand Up For Skateparks is the annual fundraiser benefiting the Tony Hawk Foundation and its mission to create free, quality skateparks for at-risk youth. What better way to spend a Sunday? The only down-side was the weather, but it didn't stop the fun-filled day of music – a live performance from Jane's Addiction, delicious food, auctions, awesome skateboarding demos, celeb sitings (think David Beckham, Mark Wahlberg, Tony Hawk, Perry Farrell, Dave Navarro, Patrick Dempsey… ) and, a sneak peek of Tony Hawk's awesome new game SHRED. The event raised $750,000 for skateparks with a sold-out crowd of 1000 people!
Tony Hawk: Shred, is a super-cool game from Activision that hits stores on Oct. 26th. Step on the motion-sensing skateboard and feel the rush of boarding with amazing graphics and no complicated controls. Just use your feet to experience the action. Definitely a must-have for the holidays!
