BMX pro Ricardo Laguna will host the evening of demonstrations by amateur and professional action sports athletes. Donations and raffle proceeds will benefit the Downtown Boys & Girls Club.

After the all-ages event, everyone 21 and older is invited to the after-party at Insert Coin(s). Bar proceeds from the night will be donated to the Downtown Boys & Girls Club.
