5th Annual Poker with the Pros Charity Event at Surfer, the Bar


Tuesday, December 5th



For quite some time now Chance’em, Turtle Bay Foundation, and Surfer [The Bar] have been joining hands with a large group of gracious individuals within the professional surfing community in order to raise money for Oahu’s High School Surf Teams. We are proud to announce that this year, our partnership will be organizing the “5th Annual Poker with the Pros” Texas Hold’Em Charity Event and we would like to cordially invite you and your friends to be a part it all!

Our Poker with the Pros event provides a fun and interactive way for you to help raise a substantial amount of support for Oahu’s High School Surf teams. 100% of your charitable donation will go towards funding our league’s never-ending expenses. All money raised through this event will help to pay for our league’s contest fees, JR lifeguard training for team members, Ocean Safety Management certification for our volunteer surf-coaches, team uniforms for the kids, travel expenses for the national surf competition in California and so much more!

In case you didn’t know, there are currently 8 schools with established surf teams on the island of Oahu with over 450 kids involved. However, surfing as a team sport is actually not being recognized by a majority of schools throughout the state of Hawaii and there is currently no funding being produced within the schools themselves. Keeping these surf teams alive is so important for the community because the teams provide a foundation for our surfing youth to succeed in so many different ways. The importance of this event and the need for receiving your continued support is profound and we hope that you will highly consider being a participant in our cause.

It is our mission to expand the sport of high school surfing in Hawaii. We hope to see surf teams in every high school around the state someday soon, but we really need your help in doing so. Therefore we are humbly asking that you make a commitment to support this event, by contributing your time and donation, which can be made in the form of a cash or surfboard donation (certain terms and conditions will apply so please see game details for more information) as an entry fee to play in this year’s tournament on Tuesday, December 5th 2017. Your generosity will surely make a difference in our community and allow us to keep these high school surf teams alive for future generations.

Thank you in advance for supporting this event and we really hope to see you there!
