We hold The Chill Foundation close to heart, and invite all attendees to join us in this support by bringing a pair of gloves that will be donated to the non-profit at the conference. We thank you in advance for helping make a difference in the life of as many youths as possible.
We will also have few pairs of gloves available for purchase at the Welcome Reception. Everyone donating gloves, or money to the cause will be entered in a raffle to win awesome prizes.
The Chill Foundation provides opportunities for under-served youth to build self-esteem and life skills through snowboarding and other board sports. Founded in 1995 by Jake and Donna Carpenter, owners of Burton Snowboard, Chill has positively impacted nearly 20,000 kids since it began. The organization runs youth-development programs in 13 cities across North America that emphasize weekly themes of Respect, Patience, Persistence, Courage, Responsibility, and Pride. The Foundation serves youth facing a multitude of challenges such as poverty, addiction, and mental health issues and gives them the chance to break boundaries and find their opportunities to be successful in life.
