Project SOS – Save Our Surf – will hold a special charity event in April to raise money for one of the world’s premier environmental organizations.
The Project SOS Surfathon is a way for surfers, non-surfers, families, and communities to become involved in giving a little time and having fun while helping out in their own backyard, the Pacific Ocean. The event will benefit Oceana, the world’s largest organization dedicated to marine conservation.
World champion surfer Shaun Thomson and ‘Hollywood Dreams’ actress Tanna Frederick will co-host the event, which will be held on Sunday, April 5th, 2009, and will begin at 10 a.m. and run until 4 p.m., with tons of activities, food, and surf!
There will be face painting and story telling for kids, free massages for parents, raffle prizes including gift certificates for clothing stores and surf shops and facials and more, Oceana speakers, live music, drum circles, and more! There will be several celebrities surfing the event, including Lost’s Michelle Rodriguez.
Then, at 5 p.m., the Project S.O.S. Celebrity Gala at Shutters on the Beach will begin. Director Henry Jaglom and actor Noah Wyle will co-host a live auction benefiting Oceana. The gala will also feature a blue carpet walk, cocktails, tapas and a live band.
The Honorary Event Committee includes Eric Roberts, Dennis Hopper, Jeff Garlin, Judd Nelson, director Ron Vignone, Rosanna Arquette, Noah Wyle, Ed Begley Jr., Justine Pasek (Miss Universe 2002), Elliot Gould and many more.
