Surf-Inspired Businesses to Make Waves, August 12

Swell Coffee Co. organizes locals-only movie night to benefit Boys to Men Mentoring’s 100 Wave Challenge

San Diego County CA— On August 12, Swell Coffee Co. will team up with two like-minded and locally loved businesses — Bird’s Surf Shed and Surf Rider Pizza — to host a movie night for a cause. One hundred percent of proceeds collected from the event will benefit Boys to Men Mentoring, an organization dedicated to supporting young, often fatherless boys on their journey to manhood, and its largest fundraiser of the year — the 100 Wave Challenge.

“The surfing mentality has always been to leave everything better than you found it – whether it’s the ocean, the environment or in this case, the next generation,” says Founder of Swell Coffee Co. John Vallas. “Partnering with Bird’s Surf Shed and Surf Rider Pizza came naturally because we share this common value. Together, we hope to make it effortless and enjoyable to support an important cause.”

At 6:30 p.m. on Friday, August 12, the fundraiser will commence at Bird’s Surf Shed — a historical representation of surfing in Southern California. The surfboard-shop-turned-theater will screen the beloved film, Chasing Mavericks, while guests socialize and enjoy specialty coffee drinks provided by Swell Coffee Co. and movie munchies courtesy of Surf Rider Pizza. One lucky raffle winner will leave the movie night with a new surfboard hand-shaped at The Boardroom Show in Del Mar, donated by friends at Revchem.

Tickets can be purchased here and include food, drinks, and a seat to watch the film under a ceiling of surfboards. Guests are encouraged to sign up to paddle out for the Boys to Men Mentoring 100 Wave Challenge on September 17.
