Last Wednesday, November 10th, Stoked hosted its 4th Annual Stoked Awards. The Stoked Awards 2010 presented by Skullycandy was a great success, honoring the amazing individuals within the Stoked community who have supported Stoked, playing a unique role in the organization throughout its growth!
The Stoked Awards 2010 presented by Skullcandy took place at the amazing Red Bull Space. Like always, Stoked co-founder Sal Masekela hosted the event impressing the crowd with his classy MC skills. Throughout the evening, Stoked recognized 6 individuals with different awards: the Stoked Volunteer Award went to Rita Wadhwani; Meg Gilsten Hale took home the Stoked Appreciation Award; Masdeck Rassi was the recipient of the Stoked Achievement Awards; and Jose Rios and Airen Renner were crowned Mentoring Pair of the Year! Each of our award winners were honored with an artistically crafted and personalized award made by artist, Mac Premo as well as a Nooka watch!
Another highlight of the evening was the silent auction, which included a bike, snowboards, Sport Illustrated Swimsuit Parties, Manolos, and Portugal Vacations. Additionally, the Skullcandy i-pad video stations allowed for guests to take a closer look at some of our programs and our Stoked Store allowed guests to take home some Stoked branded merchandise! All and all it was a great success that brought in over $65,000 our youth development programs.
