GIVE: A Creative Collaboration, which took place on August 3rd at The Camp in Costa Mesa, was a smashing success, raising over $2000 for TOMS charity through a lively art auction and the sale of custom-decorated shoes.
Over 150 pairs of shoes were sold at GIVE, meaning that TOMS non-profit will match the purchases and give 150 pairs of new shoes to children in need.
In conjunction with The Camp, Red Bull, Nalu’s, and Sambazon, Element and TOMS brought together leading Artist Advocates, such as Brook Reidt, Don Pendleton, Beck Hickey, Craig Metzger, Lisa Solberg, and Todd Francis, to celebrate and create for a good cause. Ray Barbee, The Growlers, Will Crum, and DJ’s Mataji Booker and Alfred Hawkins sounded off grooving tunes for the event, which ran from 3 PM to 9 PM.
