Vans teamed up with New York Cares & Pro-Tec for the second annual Coat Drive on Saturday at the House of Vans (Brooklyn, NY). For a simple coat donation, kids could skate for 5 hours, have some free food & drinks and enjoy a live DJ set by PF Cuttin’ and a live performance by McRAD. Towards the end of the event a Best Trick Contest went down over the collection of coats, giving skaters a chance to win some ca$h. Dillan Constantine walked away with $250 plus a year’s supply of Vans after landing a huge fs 360 ollie over the coat gap.

In the end Vans collected over 250 coats which will be distributed by New York Cares to men, women & children in need this winter. Huge thanks to Chopper Dave & Vans for putting together such a great even for a great cause!
