DC PARTNERS WITH JACK’S SURFBOARDS FOR CHARITABLE CAUSE

November 9, 2010 – Huntington Beach, CA – DC recently partnered with local Southern California Jack’s Surfboards locations to host a shoe promotion program benefiting the Soles4Souls foundation. Getting involved was simple – people donated gently used footwear and received a “thank you” credit towards their DC purchase that day.

“DC is looking forward to continuing and expanding our partnership with Jack’s Surfboards next year to benefit a great organization such as Soles4Souls,” said Brian Cassaro, DC’s Action Sports Marketing Director. “We recognize the importance of giving back and feel passionate about putting shoes on the feet of those in need.”

“We really enjoyed participating in this promotion with DC to give such a great cause,” said Bobby, owner of Jack’s Surfboards. “It was a successful program for both Jack’s and DC and we’re pleased with the outcome and our charitable contribution.”
