686 Lights Out, a charity boxing event with the industry’s finest, returns with boxing, bro’s and brews during SIA on Thursday January 31, at Casselman’s Bar and Venue in Denver, CO. Come watch professional snowboarders and industry insiders step in the ring for three rounds of hard hitting action to separate the men (or women) from the boys, all in the name of charity. “I feel like if you get asked to box, you need to step up. This is what being a part of our industry is about and what sets us apart. If you say no you will always wonder ‘what if?’ The people who I see shine are the ones who can’t help but step into the arena, whatever it is and come as it may.” proclaims Steve Klassen, founder of Wave Rave Snowboard Shop and one of the night’s contenders.

Guest referee Danny Kass, and host Dingo, will be be on hand making sure contenders come out fighting and keep things somewhat clean, while a panel of pro shreds will sit as guest judges and determine the victors. “I’m excited to see all of our industry under the same roof doing something old school,” said Dingo. “Everything today is so overhyped and produced, I’m just excited to be a part of Lights Out and see some blood!”

The night will kick off at 8PM sharp and also include the exclusive premiere of the 2013-14 snowboard video teasers. “We are excited to see the card forming. People are coming out of the their usual safe settings and putting their pride on the line for a good cause,” said Brent Sandor, 686 Director of Marketing. “There are only a couple of spots left, and they are going fast.” Registration information can be obtained by emailing Brent directly.

686 Lights Out is ticketed entry only. Tickets can be obtained from 686, Electric and Skullcandy at SIA on Thursday Jan 31, and will go fast. Don’t sleep on it or you will miss out.

686 Lights Out is presented by Electric and will feature sounds provided by Skullcandy as well as 2013-14 video teasers by kidsKNOW. Additional support is provided by Grenade, Peligroso, Pabst Blue Ribbon and the entire night benefits SOS Outreach, a nonprofit building character in youth through outdoor adventure.
