Our 14th Annual Art Gala is officially SOLD OUT! Thank you to everyone who purchased tickets in support of our mission to protect oceans, waves, and beaches.
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.
