Charity Auction: In Memory of Bradley Lentz // darb

Avatar

This charity auction is dedicated to the memory of Bradley Joseph Lentz (1979 - 2011).

On Sunday, July 3rd, 2011, Brad Lentz and his wife, Nancy, were involved in a tragic car accident at the hands of a drunk driver. Brad died at the scene and Nancy was lucky to escape with her life, while sustaining serious injuries.


Brad and Nancy Lentz

Brad was a talented photographer and a keen snowboarder. His career in action sports photography was only just beginning when his life was cut tragically short. Brad was a great friend of the Boardworld community; he was always more than happy to share his knowledge and help those in need. Brad had a wonderful soul, a great sense of humour, and he touched countless people in his short life.

The purpose of this auction is to pay tribute to an incredible person, to raise money for Nancy, and to raise awareness about drink driving and its deadly consequences.

All the money raised will be going directly to Nancy Lentz. Thank you to all the brands who came on board to support this great cause.

Thank you in advance for bidding generously on these items. If you would like to donate any money, please contact me directly.

Information: The 2011 FIND Zero turns the mountain into your own personal playground. With zero camber underfoot it feels super skatey and loose in the park to get your spins dialled.

Featuring a medium flex the FIND Zero will hold a solid edge on the groomers when you want to show the rest of the mountain your style. Flex: 6/10.
