The Transworld Sightings Gallery At ASR Raises $4,000

The Sightings Gallery At ASR Raises $4,000 for the Tony Hawk Foundation and Surf Aid International!

(10/28/2004) The TransWorld booth at this year's ASR show in San Diego debuted the first Sightings Gallery, a collection of photographs taken over the years by contributing SKATE, SURF, SNOW and FREEZE photographers. The buzz at the show was undeniable, and the success of the booth became apparent when almost every photo sold, with the proceeds going to the Tony Hawk Foundation and Surf Aid International.

When all the funds had been calculated, the Sightings Gallery generated $2,000 for each charity, minor for what they might need in the long run, but a great start for the future Sightings Gallery. The photos that did not sell are now available for purchase online, with the proceeds continuing to benefit both organizations.

The Sightings Gallery will be back for the SIA and ASR tradeshows in January, with more snowboarding and skiing photos as well as new skate and surf shots. Be sure to come by and take a look. We'll be announcing the beneficiaries of the winter Gallery in the next few weeks.
