Silent Auction | Dinner & Drinks | Entertainment

Surfrider Foundation is a community of everyday people who passionately protect our playground – the ocean, waves and beaches – for all to enjoy.

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 policy work that address clean water, beach access, coastal preservation, ocean protection, and plastic pollution. Our goal is to raise over $30,000.

This year, we’ll be celebrating at the Seaside Room at the Marina Village Conference Center on Mission Bay. Thanks to generous donations from the local artist and business community, our silent auction will feature something for everyone! Local environmental champion, Surfrider supporter and radio personality Tommy Hough will be our emcee. And as the auction wraps up, we’ll bring out Iron Sage Wood with Paul Cannon for a live performance!
