Academy Snowboard Co.’s second annual Fundraiser for the Placer High School Snowboard Team and Auburn Hip Hop Congress went off last Thursday at Frontside Café in Auburn!  The night’s events included performances by Auburn Hip Hop Congress, snowboard video premieres from Videograss, bHappy, and Bald E-Gal, and raffle drawings where over 50 people went home stoked!  Through restaurant and raffle ticket sales to a very supportive community, Academy Snowboards raised over $1300 for the two great youth organizations!

Donations will be used to keep vans fueled so the snowboard team can shred and compete around Tahoe this season, and pencils, notebooks, and tents to keep members of Auburn Hip Hop Congress writing conscious lyrics and spreading their message at shows across northern California.
