As a part of Target’s 50th anniversary celebration, the nationwide retailer brought its action sports athletes out Tuesday,October 16 . to celebrate in style in the Big Apple. The crew, which included Shaun White, Paul Rodriguez, Carissa Moore, Ryan Dungey, Kevin Robinson, and pro skiiers Simon Dumont and Torin Yater-Wallace, galavanted through NYC for the day, taking a boat ride on the Hudson around Manhattan, snapping photos, partaking in a mini shopping-spree, and finally coming together at Center 548 in Manhattan for a red carpet gala with several hundred of Target’s closest friends and family.
For athletes like White, who have been part of Target’s athlete roster for more than a decade, it was a significant milestone to celebrate alongside the Target crew. The evening’s festivities culminated with a few surprise musical performances, including one from Alicia Keys, dinner on the Lower East Side, and a visit from the beloved Target mascot, Bullseye, before the team of busy athletes parted and went their separate ways.
