Balikbayod Returning Wave presents:
Return of the Surfboards
Friday August 27, 5-9pm
Bayanihan Community Center, 1010 Mission St. at 6th, San Francisco

…A fundraising party to ship donated surfboards to our youth education program in the Philippines

Join us for an ART SALE with live music, food, dance & cash bar. Sounds by DJ LapuLapu aka “Bruddah K” from KPFA spinning Reggae, Soul, World.

*Arrive early because our evening opens with live jazz music by Little Brown Brother. Their sound incorporates indigenous Filipino music and instruments as well as Spanish-influenced traditional songs.

Help us raise the remainder amount of funds to ship the community-donated surfboards overseas to the Philippines!

Balikbayod—Returning Wave is a program dedicated to promoting education through the love of surfing. We bring donated surfboards to the Philippines for kids to borrow, provided they stay enrolled in school or return to school through Alternative Learning Systems (ALS). It is a life-altering experience to surf, and giving this incredible opportunity to a young kid is priceless. Make that difference in someone’s life.

This is a CASH & CARRY event. Please be prepared to bring your fabulous purchases home with you. Credit card transactions available.

All funds raised will be applied to the shipping of our first large batch of community-donated surfboards. We’re at 30+ boards so far!
