In an effort to raise funds and awareness about local issues affecting our oceans, waves and beaches, the Surfrider Foundation San Diego County Chapter held the 13th Annual Art Gala on May 10th, 2013 at Paradise Point Resort & Spa.
In addition to a new venue, this year’s event included more live artists featuring Nathan Gibbs, Bryan Helfand and Juan Tocayo Marante, an interactive art project and live music from Casey Turner and Brett Dennen!
The event also featured live and silent auctions of artwork, surf gear and other luxury items, awards and awareness. To see some of the items that were up for bid, check out our blog.
This year’s event attracted close to 450 attendees ranging from surfers to environmental activists to art enthusiasts and raised over $25,000 for local chapter campaigns, programs and initiatives.
