Never Summer and Make a Wish team up to raise money

Not only is Never Summer one of the only privately owned snowboard brands in the nation, it is also one of the last to manufacture its boards from start to finish in the United States. In other words, it’s one of the “little guys,” but Never Summer’s co-founding brothers Tim and Tracey Canaday don’t hide behind the brand’s small business status when it comes to philanthropy.

Tim’s son was diagnosed with brain cancer a few years ago and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado granted his wish to travel to Disney World in Orlando, FL. This year Never Summer paid it forward by producing 40 Never Summer custom Make-A-Wish boards with one-of-a-kind graphics designed by NS’s Jeremy Salyer.

This past Saturday night the Grand Reveal of the Never Summer custom Make-A-Wish boards, a men’s SL 155 and a women’s Infinity 151, went down in Denver, CO. Attendees were given the chance to make a silent bid on the limited edition boards in addition to being treated to tacos from Good Eats, tasty desserts and a generously stocked bar of beverages.

If you missed the Grand Reveal Event, you can still get your hands on one of 40 limited edition (SL 155 or Infinity 151) boards and help make wishes come true for children facing life-threatening medical conditions. $400 of every snowboard sold will benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Colorado.
