WAKEBOARDING LEGEND, PARKS BONIFAY, PUTS DOWN THE BOARD AND TAKES THE THRONE AT RED BULL TOASTED
August 29, 2011 - ORLANDO - At just six months old Parks Bonifay set a Guinness World Record for the youngest person to ever rock a pair of water skiis, he's taken to the podium with two X-Game Gold medals and five Pro Tour Gravity Games championships and he's influenced the progression of the most infant of all action sports. Considered by many to be the world's greatest wakeboarding free rider with more accomplishments and decorations than any other rider- Parks Bonifay will finally be honored with a celebration worthy of his memorable career and some shortcomings at Red Bull Toasted.
Hosted by celebrity commentator, Sal Masakela, the event will bring fans, friends and family together for a night of tribute and entertainment as Parks Bonifay gets the toast or rather "roast" of his life. Returning to the notable Hard Rock Live Orlando where Bonifay's biography film was premiered, recognizing him as a legend in his sport just two years ago, will be transformed into a whole new experience on September 9th. Awaiting him behind those doors is an array of celebrity friends and athletes ready to poke a little fun at the guest of honor while he stews in the hot seat (all in love and admiration of course).
Red Bull Toasted will feature celebrity guest including skateboarding pro Ryan Sheckler and special appearances by several wakeboading influentials such as 2007 Rookie of the Year award winner Adam Errington, four-time World Champion Shaun Murray and legend Zane Schwenk. With a few career highlights and even some - ahem – lowlights added in the mix for further amusement. To ensure good humor, stand up comedians Dan Levy and Tammy Pescatelli will also take the stage.
Red carpet arrivals will take place at 7:00 p.m. and Red Bull Toasted will begin at 8:00 p.m. The event is open to the public, welcomes all ages and tickets can be purchased on-line.
