EVENT: Etnies Opens Office Up to Hundreds of Kids in Need

Rather than cancel its annual Holiday Festival due to the rain, Pierre-Andre and the etnies team opened up the offices today to about 300 local kids to celebrate the season.  This Holiday Festival started in 2004, and over the last decade more than 4,000 pairs of shoes have been given to kids in need at the annual event.  During today’s festivities, every kid was given a new pair of etnies shoes, a chance to meet the etnies team, take pictures with Santa and play games.  

Do you think this kid asked David if there were Maranas in the package?

Pierre-Andre, Ryan Sheckler, Chris Joslin, David Reyes, Aidan Campbell and Trevor McClung from etnies spreading good cheer.

“There’s nothing more meaningful to me than seeing the smile on a child’s face because they received a new pair of etnies shoes,” says Pierre-Andre Senizergues, owner and CEO of etnies.  “I’m thrilled that for the past ten years, I’ve been able to do this with my team and bring something extra special to kids during this Christmas season.”

etnies would like to give a special thanks to ChocXO Coffee and Cacao, WSS and all the non-profit organizations that shared in the season of giving and helped make this event possible.
