In July the Valpo Surf Project hosted its 3rd Silent Auction Fundraiser in Los Angeles at Back on Broadway in Santa Monica and was met with an incredible amount of support from the local community. More than 50 people came out to support the Valpo Surf Project and learn about the programming that we offer to youth in Valparaíso.

A huge thank you goes out to the event’s head organizer, Katie Burns, and the members of the organizing committee–including Jennifer Pollick, Jan Burns, and Joey Reynolds–and all of the volunteers who helped to make the event a success. Much thanks to the Burns and Gilbert families for all of their support in organizing and orchestrating this fundraiser.
