Clear your calendar – It’s going down! The Surfrider Foundation 2016 Kick Off Party jams out on January 16th, and you’re invited to take part in the festivities. The Bends will be hosting a plastic-free straw night of fun and excitement with local bands Badda Skat, Oceanstone, and Irie Vibes.

On top of some of the best reggae in the local area we’ll be slinging a surfboard raffle, skateboard raffle and dozens of other prize raffles/ giveaways throughout the evening. Entry fee per person is a $5.00 donation per person at the door (raffle ticket for donation in general raffle), but you may donate more than once for additional raffle tickets and big ticket item raffles.

“Surfriders holiday party is one of our biggest events of the year and a unique opportunity to fuse activists, artists and musicians all for a common cause. This years event is looking to be our biggest yet and a great opportunity to highlight the chapters “Rise Above Plastics” campaign educating the public about the dangers of single use plastics.” said Thomas Paterek, Chair of the Suncoast Chapter.

Come one, come all, bring a guest, and hang loose. This is going to be epic!
