2020 California Dreamer award was also presented.
The 2020 California Dreamer award is presented to an individual who embodies the California spirit — innovators, entrepreneurs and risk-takers who inspire others in their communities and around the world.

This year’s California Dreamer is a legendary skateboarder, entrepreneur and the founder of the Tony Hawk Foundation — Tony Hawk!

Tony Hawk was nine years old when his brother changed his life by giving him a blue fiberglass Bahne skateboard. By fourteen he’d turned pro, and by sixteen he was widely considered the best skateboarder on earth. World Champion for 12 years in a row, Hawk continues to skate demos and exhibitions internationally, making him the most recognized action-sports figure in the world.

Tony is a role model for fans of all ages. His Tony Hawk Foundation has given away over $7.9 million to over 600 skatepark projects throughout the world. Tony’s foundation helps finance public skateparks in low-income areas in all 50 states and other parts of the world through their partnership with Skateistan, providing a safe place to skate. Skateparks that received financial assistance from the Tony Hawk Foundation currently serve more than 6 million kids annually.
