SurfAid Cup at Malibu
Monday, September 12, 2016
IndoTeak Design is proud to support SurfAid International, an organization committed to supporting, creating and providing positive change to remote communities around the globe. This past week, SurfAid hosted it’s annual fundraising event at Malibu and raised over $125,000 for the organization.
The team from our very own Indoteak Design, sponsored by Frank and Amy Ragen, won the fundraising Cup by raising $16,150 with team captain Jeremy Horowitz. In the past five years, the SurfAid Cup in Malibu has raised more than $500,000 for SurfAid.
Mark Price, CEO of Firewire said, “We are obviously stoked to win today, but there are no bragging rights, because anything we did today pales in comparison to what SurfAid does every day. SurfAid is a phenomenal organization and we are proud to support them,” says Mark Price, CEO of Firewire.
All funds raised contribute to SurfAid’s mother and child health programs in remote areas of Indonesia in Nias, the Mentawai Islands, Sumbawa and Sumba. “The funds raised by the SurfAid Cup in Malibu, the ongoing support of Malibu Surf Association (MSA), and the community of Malibu truly saves lives in Indonesia. With a ‘hand up, not a hand out’ philosophy, SurfAid works with simple, but high impact solutions including clean water, access to basic health care and improved nutrition. Days like today show that surfers can make a real difference and give back to the places they love” says Andrew Judge, CEO of SurfAid.
