“This is a great event and our premier fundraiser for the year,” says Jamie McCallum of NH Surfrider. “We’re looking forward to a huge crowd and a fun night!”
The event, which starts at 8:00 pm, will feature a DJ and live music from area band Kings Highway. The event will be held upstairs in the nightclub space (21+) at The Portsmouth Gas Light Co. Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door.
Also, over one thousand dollars worth of gear, gift cards and other prizes will be handed out during the evening’s raffle event. This includes donations of surfboards, wetsuits, massage packages, ski passes, and much more from sponsors including local surf shops, ski resorts, massage therapists, and surfboard builders.
Proceeds from this year’s event will go to support NH Surfrider, the Molly Rowlee Foundation and the Linda Jo Fund. NH Surfrider is a local chapter of the non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. The Molly Rowlee Foundation raises money for cancer research and the Linda Jo Fund raises money to support free surf lessons for underprivileged children.
“The surfing community is very generous and we’re delighted to include both of these causes in the evening,” explains McCallum. “A big thank you to all our sponsors and the Gas Light for supporting the event for a third year.”
