MTV Star

Grinds Out $50,000

for L.A. Skate Park

"Fantasy Factory" star Rob Dyrdek is $50,000 closer to building a dream skate park for kids in L.A. ... thanks to a HUGE donation from one of his co-stars.

Dyrdek has been super-passionate about building skate parks where kids can SAFELY skate whenever they want -- and now his former assistant Chris Pfaff (better known as Drama) is taking another cue from his mentor and helping the cause ... with a $50,000 donation.

In fact, Drama is so serious about the cause, he's also donating a portion of the profits from a new shirt and a new hoodie that his skate clothing company will be selling.

TMZ spoke to a rep for Drama ... who tells us, "[Pfaff] worked as Rob Dyrdek's assistant for multiple years picking up a lot of the skills and knowledge that Rob had for his businesses.  Now it's Drama's turn to give back to Rob's foundation by opening his very own safe spot skate spot."

Drama will present the check at a charity event for the Rob Dyrdek Foundation in L.A. this weekend. The exact location of the park has yet to be determined.

Glad to see Rob giving back. The Tony Hawk Foundation raised $755,000 the weekend before and have built well over 400 skateparks around the country...all in low income areas. Props Tony.

It is an insult that you would refer to the GREAT Rob D. as merely an "MTV Star." He is much more than that, and was a big name before any MTV shows of his. LOVE YOU ROB!

Yes the cost to build a park is expensive but, the Real $$$$ comes for the Insurance on the park. It's Almost Prohibitive. A Very nice park in San Diego had to close down because the insurance was Costing Too Damn Much!!
