Hansen Surfboards Holds Bake Sale, Surfboard Opportunity Drawing July 21 to Help Eradicate Childhood Hunger

 

 

 

Hansen Surfboards employees Alexa Dilley and Patty Bolton show off their home baked

goods and the surfboards that will be given away in the opportunity drawing at July 21st  bake sale.

 

ENCINITAS, Calif., July 16, 2012 – The Hansen family is known for rallying behind a good cause, and this time is no different. When Hansen Surfboards employee Patty Bolton approached Josh Hansen and suggested a bake sale to raise money to help feed hungry kids, he was all for it and the whole staff joined in to help. Patty’s idea – to hold a bake sale Saturday, July 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the store parking lot to help raise funds for Share Our Strength, an organization that helps feed hungry kids – quickly gained popularity when Channel Islands Surfboards donated a Taylor Knox autographed board for an opportunity drawing. LOST Surfboards also donated a board for the drawing.

 

“I watching the cooking channel one day when I saw a special about the Share Our Strength Great American Bake Sale and it said that one in five children in America struggle with hunger every day. I decided to take my love of baking and do something good for kids in need,” explained Bolton. “When I was just starting out, I lived in a little complex near the beach full of surfers and one single mom. Her little boy used to come to my apartment every day and ask if I had any food. I used to give him whatever I had. I look back on that now, and I realize how sad that was. That little guy was actually hungry. I want to do something about kids like that. I want to help.”

 

Already, Bolton and the Hansen Surfboards staff has raised slightly more than $600 for Share Our Strength, just $900 shy of the goal to raise $1,500.
