San Diego Surfrider Foundation Art Gala 2014

Excited to announce that for the third year now, I am honored to be donating a piece of art to help protect our beaches and oceans with the San Diego Surfrider Foundation. John and I thoroughly enjoyed our date night last year to the gala and we are more than looking forward to this year also! Our favorite part about last year’s event is hard to narrow down, the food, the music (Brett Dennan & Casey Turner), the art, and hanging with other local sea going folk were really a treat. This year I donated "Cloudy with a Chance of Waves", an original I painted while waiting on a swell to roll in. But I'll take any little waves I can get.. it's more about the wave riding than the size to me! They blogged about my piece and others that have already been donated here.


Tickets for the 14th Annual Art Gala on Friday, May 9th from 6-10pm at Paradise Point Resort & Spa are on sale now!
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. Music will be provided by San Diego musicians Tristan Prettyman and Paul Cannon. For a sneak peak at some of the items up for bid this year, check out the Art Gala blog.
Last year’s event attracted close to 450 attendees ranging from surfers to environmental activists to art enthusiasts and raised over $25,000 for local programs and initiatives.
