South Coast Surf Shops has teamed up with SurfShot Media in a fund-raiser for SurfAid International. The fundraiser will be held at Bareback Grill, in the heart of downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter on Thursday, September 4. The fund-raising party has been timed in conjunction with ASR, the surf industry’s biggest convention of the year, held at San Diego’s Convention Center September 4-6.
According to SouthCoast.com co-owner Heather Shields, the partnership between SurfShot and South Coast for an ASR event is a perfect match.
“South Coast has been serving the San Diego surfing community since 1974, and SurfShot magazine has grown to be one of our most supportive partners for local advertising. When they came to us with the idea for a SurfAid fund-raiser, we jumped on it.”
Said John Cocozza, account executive and staff photographer for SurfShot, “We wanted to do something for all the ASR people to let loose after the first day of the convention, and maybe conduct a little business over a burger and beer with colleagues. The entertainment will be top-notch. It’s an event that everybody will be talking about the next day.”
