Toys for Tots

Custom Skateboard Raffle!

And the winning number is.......

!!!   832323   !!!


This year for the holidays, Paradox has teamed up with Toy For Tots to generate some holiday cheer for kids! So I custom painted this skateboard live, during the Christmas on the Square event in downtown Waynesville to kick it off.

When trying to decide who should pull the ticket, I figured why not a cop? They are ticket professionals, right? So Officer Alex Baker of the Waynsville PD met up with me and Al Fagen from the Marine Corps Toys for Tots and pulled the winning ticket. (Instead of writing one!)

When the raffle was all done, we had three boxes of toys and a handful of cash with a combined value of over $3100!

All for Toys for Tots!!!

Thanks to all who gave!!

Special thanks to Kyle Young of Las Vegas NV for a most generous donation!

And a very special thanks to Bravo Company, 31st Engineering Battalion for a massive donation.

DS Diana Vazquez  accepts the skateboard on behalf of Bravo Company, 31st Engineer Battalion.

Their donation was so generous that we had a plaque made to express our appreciation.

I met with DS Adam Tiffany, Al Fagen and Bravo Company, 31st Engineer Battalion who pitched in in a big way!!

Just getting started...

My lovely assistants! Thank you ladies!

The finished product.

Three days before the drawing, I received an email from Drill Sergeant Adam Tiffany, informing me that he’d been made aware of the fundraiser/raffle and had organized a toy and cash collection from Bravo Company, 31st Engineer Battalion.  Their donation entitled them to approximately 2500 raffle tickets!! Talk about stacking the deck!

Time to draw the winning ticket!!

I thought this was a pretty cool picture.
