Surfrider Foundation Beach Bash

Published by at 2:17 pm under family & friends

Am delighted to be able to report that last night’s Surfrider Sydney
Northern Beaches fund raiser was a major success.  Held at the Wharf Bar in Manly (a brilliant venue) over 270 people came along to  watch Tim Bonython surf films, hear the Goons of Doom play,  be entertained by our wonderful MC, Wendy Harmer and of course, learn a bit more about Surfrider and meet Surfrider people.   Over $16.5k was raised (through door sales, auctions
and raffles) and 65 new Surfrider members were signed up.    It was a
wonderful night for Surfrider, with the whole event having a really
positive feel to it.

A massive vote of congratulations and thanks  must go to the key
organisers:  Kev Roche, Eve Clark and Amy Pamphlett.  There were many
others who assisted, however these were the key people who made the whole
thing happen.   The event ran incredibly smoothly due to the amount of work
these guys put into pulling it together and I’m sure they would be willing
to give advice to any other Chapters thinking of holding similar events in
the future.   Once again – many thanks for a brilliant effort.
