Wakeboarders Supporting Toys for Tots
Bid on $80,000 worth of wake gear, including a Tige Z1 wakeboard boat.
San Diego, CA – November 25, 2009 – As the 2009 holiday season approaches, WakeWorld.com has joined forces with Tige Boats and many other sponsors to help out those that are less fortunate during the season of giving. Owner and editor, David Williams, kicked off the 5th Annual WakeWorld Toys For Tots Benefit Auction by putting a call out to the wakeboarding industry for donations of product. As usual, he received an overwhelming response in the form of 100 products ranging from wakeboards autographed by pro riders to one-of-a-kind and limited edition gear never before offered to the public. The topper was the donation of a Tige Z1 wakeboard boat from Tige Boats!
That means that over $80,000 worth of wake gear is now up for grabs in online Ebay auctions and you can get a jump start on your holiday shopping by taking advantage of these great deals. However, the auctions will be ending on Wednesday, December 2, so time to act is short! Check out all the auctions running at http://bit.ly/5JlUC2.
In addition to Tige Boats, other companies helping out the cause in big way are CWB Board Co., Gator Boards, Kicker Audio, Performance Ski & Surf, Liquid Acoustics, Roswell Wake-Air, Wet Sounds, Liquid Trends, Roxio, Company, Bullet Speakers, OJ Props, Active Water Sports, Nice Rack, Byerly Boards, OnlyInboards.com, Grindwater, Inland Surfer, Liquid Force, Slingshot, HSE Trident, Proline, Shred Ready, Oakley, Monster Tower, Asylum Boardz, Boardflix, DPC Films, Huck Doll, Jetpilot, Global Warning, CIE, Geiger Media and Robert Mitchell.
