Costa Mesa, Calif. – New Jersey and Orange County based lifestyle brand, ERGO Clothing in partnership with Waves For Water lead a national effort to supply relief plus aid to victims of Hurricane Sandy in New York and New Jersey.

The main goal is to work quickly and efficiently to provide relief and deliver it right into the hands of victims and restore their lives back to normal. Restore The Shore Projects is based on the ground in the heart of the devastation. The Restore The Shore initiative is working along side other local disaster relief organizations promoting the rebuilding process.

”It’s great to see the support from our west coast team in an effort to continue to raise funds and awareness. With a lack of media coverage, the public doesn’t realize there are still thousands of families displaced and the devastation is far from recovered,” said Pete DiSpirito, ERGO Co-Founder.

The Restore Projects OC benefit will be held on January 10, 2013 at Orange County’s favorite live music venue, the Detroit Bar, located 843 W. 17th St. in Costa Mesa. The fundraising efforts will be through ticket donations, ferris wheel raffle, taco and drink specials and Boardwalk silent auction and will go directly to the Restore The Shore Project.

The buzz surrounding The Restore The Shore benefit has already been whirling around Orange County. Headlining the event is the Ragged Jubilee, and will also showcase Spare Parts for Broken Hearts, The Originalites and Moxi (aka Anna Nelson). This highly anticipated benefit opens its doors at 6pm. Event flier attached below.

About ERGO Clothing
ERGO was born in 2007 by a group of young creatives disillusioned by a market full of homogenous brands. Our mission is simple, to pioneer a fashion lifestyle brand, staying true to our heritage as artists, designers, and musicians loyal to our core roots in beach culture. Our mascot, the “owlstein” is a symbol of a solitary bird of prey, adorned with a viking helmet to express our unique style, stealth, and creativity.

Owlstein also represents our love of the outdoors, and our awareness of our environment. Ergo brand ambassadors are a parliment of creatives who embody the ERGO lifestyle, our apparel is our message - expression rather than emulation. Season to season ERGO consistently delivers quality goods and has become an underground creative market leader. Unique and fresh, expect ERGO to transcend the delusions with exceptional styles and fits, new trends, and always leading, never following.
