Tony Hawk launches third Boards & Bands auction



2015-08-20 09:03:27

Legendary pro skateboarder Tony Hawk and musician Ben Harper have launched their third annual Boards + Bands auction to benefit the Tony Hawk Foundation-which supports funding for skateparks in the US.

Hawk asked a number of his pro skating buddies to donate their used boards to the foundation and submit the names of their favorite musicians and songs.

Musician Ben Harper then tracked down each of the artists that were named and asked them to write the lyrics to the skaters favorite song on the board and seal it with a signature. 

The result? Boards signed by U2, Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John, Pearl Jam, Tom Petty, Metallica and many more.

All proceeds from the sale will directly benefit the Tony Hawk Foundation, which helps set up skateparks in low-income areas in the US.
