We're cranking up the Christmas spirit once again with our 8th Annual WakeWorld Toys For Tots Auctions. We've raised over $48,800 in past years and we're looking to add to that total with your help.

WakeWorld will again be running an online auction of donated items from companies and individuals in order to generate money to buy toys for underprivileged kids that otherwise may not be getting any gifts this holiday season. 100% Of the profits from these auctions will go to Toys for Tots.

We need you to get the word out to your favorite wake shops and wake companies so that they'll donate some goodies to the cause. If you or your company are interested in donating something, hit me up at gobig@wakeworld.com.

It's only been a few days since we announced it and we've already received about thousands of dollars in donations...

- Kicker is kicking in two subwoofers and two tower component systems!
- CWB Board Co. always goes big with some wakeskates, bindings and rope/handle packages!
- Slingshot stepped up with four sets of bindings!
- Evo busted out a Ronix One Modello wakeboard!
- SeaDek is dropping a custom swimstep pad (I have one on my boat)!
- Boat Bling came up with $100 worth of product for getting your boat clean!
- Fresh Air Exhaust is always supporting the cause with an FAE system!
- Ohana Board Shop is having their team rider, Steve Caballero, sign a deck!

Add to that pending donations from Zane Schwenk, Monster Tower, Boardstop, Boardflix and Ronix!

Auctions will run for a week starting on Tuesday, 11/27. Be sure to get your bid in to help a great cause and get a great deal at the same time.

Thanks for your help!!

David, I sent you an email. Sacramento Performance Marine will do the same donation as last year.
Hopefully you can pull the info out of the archives from last year.

Ok kiddos, all 67 auctions are LIVE and we've got some really cool stuff for you to bid on. The best part is that every auction (except the Tige boat) starts at $1.00. Now is the time to do some Christmas shopping for all the wake heads on your list!

So then the Tigé starts at $2.00?
Old    David Williams (wakeworld)      Join Date: Jan 1997       11-28-2012, 9:14 AM Reply   
Haha, the Tigé retails for $57,900 and we're starting the bidding at only $45,000. Pretty good deal if you ask me!

I guess GoPro didn't like us using their images for our GoPro Hero 3: White Edition camera, so they complained to Ebay and Ebay removed the auction. So we had to relist it with a different photo and here is the new link: http://www.ebay.com/itm/310522044031...84.m1557.l2649

It will be a three-day auction that starts at 10:32 AM PT Saturday. Sorry for the confusion.

Also, the Hyperlite and Byerly boards are listed as 2012, but they are really 2013 models. That's a little inside tip for you WakeWorlders!

- Hyperlite B-Side
- Byerly Monarch

March 1st thru 10th, heading down a few days early to hit up a few boat sets to knock the rust off. I know a few people with boats in & around Orlando that I want to kick it with. The Past 4 years my boat has made it in the water in March - hoping this will be the case again this year!
