Last year, I got to be part of the It’s About Sea Life Benefit, an awesome event that my friend, neighbor and client, Milton Fiala of SurfAddict somehow magically pulled together.
The event was so awesome last year, that rather than just sponsoring the event, I decided to join in as an It’s About Sea Life Benefit partner!
And I’m not the only one that thinks that the It’s About Sea Life Benefit will be the bomb this year.
Other partners include FuelTV, Barefoot Wine, the Hilton at SF’s Fisherman’s Wharf, New Belgium Brewing Company, SF’s Hardrock Cafe, Daniel Castro, the Bay Club, ASR and Marc B.
This year’s event benefits SurfAid International, Save the Waves Coalition, Surfrider Foundation and The Marine Mammal Center.
