“In 2008, we raised almost $8,000 in funds; we consider this event tremendously successful. The 2000 people in attendance coupled with the great press coverage; provided amazing visibility for the Newport Beach Chapter of Surfrider Foundation. We collected an impressive amount of signatures for our Save Trestles campaign”, said a representative of the Surfrider Foundation. Raquel Media is looking forward to raising funds once again for this great cause and putting on a fun summer event in Orange County.

The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches.
