When I caught Danny Clinch at the Asbury Park Music in Film Festival, he kindly gave me the scoop on an ultimate Jersey collaboration.  It involves quite the "NJ trio" — Clinch, skateboarder-turned-actor and musician Mike Vallely and Bruce Springsteen.

So, to recap: limited edition handcrafted skateboard decks featuring Clinch's iconic Springsteen photos. Three charities split all the proceeds: The Kristen Ann Carr Fund (which fights against sarcoma), The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties and Surfers Healing (which introduces those with autism to surfing).

They're being sold now, through Vallely's Street Plant Brand on eBay. Once sales opened over the weekend, a couple were quickly snapped up.

Proud Jersey Girl Erin Vogt’s first reporting gig involved her Fisher Price tape recorder. As a wife and momma of two kiddies, she firmly believes that life’s too short to drink bad coffee.  A fan of the beach, Dave Grohl and karma, in no particular order.
