As a A-list star studded family-friendly event, Tony Hawk’s Stand Up for Skateparks pulled a huge crowd every year and to this day was one of our favorite events to be a part of year after year. It was an awesome action-sports carnival with live performances, games, food, and live and silent auctions.
These events have raised over $9.3-million dollars since they started in 2004 and all the profits benefit the Tony Hawk Foundation’s mission to empower youth through skateboarding with the creation of free quality public skateparks in low-income communities.
Auction Event Solutions worked closely with the Hawk Foundation on preparing the auction, as well as ran the day of event management. We worked alongside them to helped procure items for the amazing auction, helping with email requests, storing items, software data entry, packaging and wrapping.
On the day of the event Auction Event Solutions took over the auction entirely, we printed all bid sheets and item display sheets, set up the items, closed the auction, recorded the sales, we also prepared and ran item pick up. We did all of that plus we handled both the public and the VIP check-in bringing our own equipment to the beautiful Beverly Hills estate. It was always a busy time for all our staff, but it is what we love to do.
