Total Amount Raised: $4,243
As usual, the wakeboarding community came through again with a ton of support for the victims of the California wildfires! Our great sponsors and you, the readers, came together and generated over $4,200, which will go to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to help fire vitims. Along with our previous fundraisers for Toys For Tots and Hurricane Katrina victims, the wake community has poured nearly $20,000 into some great causes!
Almost immediately after we sent out a request for items to auction off in our most recent benefit, we got an extremely generous offer from Liquid Force to not only kick in three 2008 pro model boards, but to have the pros, Keith Lyman, Danny Hampson and Amber Wing, autograph each one! That was followed up by an offer from J-Star to do the same with board and binding sets signed by Jeff Weatherall and Brett Eisenhauer!
That was just the start of the generosity that came pouring out. Here are the other companies that provided you with amazing deals on some great gear in our California Wildfire Relief Auction...

Thanks to our great sponsors and all the bidders for their continued support!
