Join us for our 14th Annual Art Gala on Friday, May 9th from 6-10pm at Paradise Point Resort & Spa.

The event will feature live and silent auctions of artwork, vacation and spa packages, surf gear, and other luxury items. There will also be an interactive art project and live art installations from Wade Koniakowsky, Sean Dietrich, and Rodney Rodrigo Mccoubrey. Music will be provided by Tristan Prettyman and Paul Cannon. To see some of the items that are up for bid, check out our blog.

This year we will offer $60 General Admission tickets and a handful of VIP tickets, which include a Surfrider Foundation membership and reusable bag, meet and greet with Tristan Prettyman and an autographed poster. We are expecting to sell out again this year, so please get your tickets before it’s too late. Tickets go on sale to the public on March 21st.
