San Diego County Chapter

20th Annual Art Gala & Auction

Surfrider Foundation is a community of folks passionate about the protection and enjoyment of our ocean, waves, and beaches – for all people. 

Our Annual Art Gala & Auction brings together our beloved community of coastal defenders, supporters, and members. This annual event raises funds for our critical programs and mission work that address clean water, beach access, coastal preservation, ocean protection, and plastic pollution. 

Our goal is to raise funds while rewarding our donors with incredible local art and prizes!

This year’s event will be hybrid. The 2022 silent auction will take place online for one week. The auction will culminate on July 24th from 6-9 pm at an in-person reception in the outdoor garden space at the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens Liberty Station.

Presale will begin July 1st with discounted early bird admission.
