12th Annual Gala Fundraiser

October 26 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The California Surf Museum’s annual fundraising Gala will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the Cape Rey Hilton, Carlsbad, Calif. The evening begins with a 4 pm cocktail hour on the outdoor patio adjacent to our silent auction room with dinner service in the main ballroom following at 7. Once meal service is completed, the excitement begins with a live auction of surfboards made specifically for this event. Our evening is then completed with the presentation of the Silver Surfer award to our honorees to Lisa Andersen, Tom Curren and Don Hansen.

A lifetime achievement honor, the “Silver Surfer Award” is presented annually by the California Surf Museum to a surfer who has made significant contributions to the culture and lifestyle of the surfing community and whose life has also inspired others to expand their awareness and continues to set a shining example of a true Silver Surfer. The recipient will be presented with a “Silver Surfer Award” inscribed with their name and year of honor; a perpetual “Silver Surfer Award” with names of the recipients will be housed at the California Surf Museum.

The past recipients of our Silver Surfer award are notable surfers and contributors to the surfing industry: Gary Linden, Linda Benson, Skip Frye, Greg Noll, Nat Young, Joyce Hoffman, Gerry Lopez, Jericho Poppler, Fernando Aguerre, Wayne “Rabbit” Bartholomew, Ian “Kanga” Cairns, Dane Kealoha, Margo Godfrey Oberg, Mark “MR” Richards, Shaun Tomson and Peter “PT” Townend.
