Project Save Our Surf's 24 Hour Surf-A-Thon Raises $50,000
The event, which featured surfing, mural painting, arts and education projects, volleyball, yoga and eco-friendly food, took place this weekend and raised a whopping $50,000 in just 24 hours. Amazing!
As promised, stars like True Blood’s Sam Trammell, 24‘s Eric Balfour, and Mad Men’s John Slattery all came out to show their support and help raise money for the organization.
“I think it’s a really fun idea, it’s so different,” said actor Eric Balfour, who regularly surfs at Newport Beach. “It’s such a simple thing. This is it, this is our ocean – it should be enjoyed.”
