On Sunday April 5th, CWIC sponsored the Save Our Surf Surfathon in Ocean Park. Save Our Surf is an organization started by actress Tanna Frederick and pro surfer Shaun Thomson where surfers and non surfers alike can give back while also keeping the oceans clean. Weather was great and celebrities were out in an effort to help Oceana, the world's largest ocean preservation organization, in their attempt to clean our World's beaches. The day began at 9 a.m. and included both pro and celeb surf competitions, mural painting and boogie board contests for the kids and a good time for everyone. Michelle Rodriguez, Eric Balfour, and David Chokachi were all there along with Pro surfers Rob Machado, Frank Caronna, and James Pribram and many more.
After the sun went down, fans and celebrities alike were invited to attend a "blue" carpet gala and silent auction at Shutters on the Beach that was also sponsored by the Save Our Surf Foundation. ER's Noah Wyle and actor Judd Nelson hosted the event along with director Henry Jaglom. CWIC offered an impressive arrangement of snorkel gear as items to be auctioned off, along with other sponsors who provided private surf lessons with a pro, art sculptures, and a Charlie Palmer celebrity chef dinner for 14 people.winnings included all from a 1/2 hour at home healing massage, a Wii game station or a $200 car detailing gift certificate. The day was huge success and a wonderful coming together of those who have a love and desire to keep the oceans beautiful. We had a great time and thank you so much to everyone that came out. Until next time!!
