Swag and a Good Cause

This lucky couple walked away with a Sacrifice Stimulus deck among other things at a benefit that took place at The Burger Bowl for Kaylie Hayes, a little 5 year old girl that is in need of medical diagnosis and treatment for a behavioral disorder that plagues her. The money raised went towards Kaylie's treatment at UCI.
Lyle and Becky hosted the event and as always made sure everyone was having a good time. A suggested donation at the door got you some good food and all the beer you could drink. A raffle also raised some money. Despite the threat of rain, it was a good turn out.
If you'd like to make a donation, go to PayPal and use this e-mail address:
or send a check to: PO Box 18685 Main St. Suite 101 PMB 224 Huntington Beach, CA 92648-1719

Sacrifice resident pro Casey McMaugh has his second model out now with us for Winter 2009. Killer new shape available in two sizes, look for it.

Zach's board has all original art by Zach himself with BJ's art coming courtesey of Thatcher. Sacrifice and Anchor Blue are working together on a I.E. Tour for early Spring 2010.

Past Rider: Mike Hamerla

Mike Hamerla
Mike was one of the first young gunz to ride for Sacrifice. I actually met him at a little hamburger joint in West L.A. We were hanging out drinking forties and grubbing down on some kick ass burgers. Later that same year I met up with him at Andy's pool in Chino and the rest was history. Mike is one of my best friends and one hell of a guy. He left Sacrifice in 2005 to start his own company, Backstabber Skates. Go check out his site and support my homeboy!
