Stoked Awards 2010 presented by Skullcandy a Success!

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.

Thank you to the event committee and everyone who attended the event!

Stoked x Skullcandy

Stoked is very excited to announce the launch of a long partnership with Skullcandy, the company that has revolutionized the headphone industry that is also one of the headlining brands within the action sports industry. The yearlong collaboration will be officially launched at the Skullcandy sponsored 2010 Stoked Awards on November 10, 2010 in New York City.  This is not only an unprecedented relationship for Stoked and Skullcandy; it is also a groundbreaking cause marketing initiative within the action sport industry.

Skullcandy, one of the most dynamic bands out there, will support Stoked by leveraging the various platforms and resources within its brand, including its athletes, technology innovation, design team, and corporate network. Over the next year, Skullcandy will be an integral part of Stoked’s events, Stoked’s mentoring programs, and the Stoked Plus apprentice program. Stoked teens will have the opportunity to visit the Skullcandy headquarters in California, where they will see the behind-the-scenes corporate environment of a major player in the action sports industry. Skullcandy athletes will attend Stoked program surf, skate, and snow sessions, becoming real-life role models for the teens. Stoked youth will also have the opportunity to work directly with Skullcandy designers and artists to design a limited edition Stoked x Skullcandy headphone. (I know…I want to be a Stoked kid too!)

Like all of Stoked’s partnerships, the youth in Stoked’s programs are the real beneficiaries of the collaboration. However, it will also provide Skullcandy an opportunity to give back to the action sport industry and further align its corporate identity with the Stoked values and ideals. Stoked is proud to be associated with the Skullcandy brand, its athletes, and its products and we can’t wait to see what lies ahead in the continual evolution of cause marketing and this relationship!
