Surfrider Foundation’s O‘ahu Chapter would like to invite you to join us for the 15th Annual John Kelly Awards Celebration at beautiful Waimea Valley on November 18th 2017. The annual fundraiser and awards ceremony honors leaders in environmental protection and pays tribute to the memory of legendary community organizer and activist, John Kelly of Save our Surf. The awards ceremony recognizes a surfer, company, and lifetime achievement winners who embody the spirit, mana, and dedication of Mr. John Kelly.
As Always a huge Mahalo to Heather Brown Surf Art for the incredible art work – Heather has been donating her talents for almost a decade of John Kelly Awards and this year created the beautiful “Blue Waimea” (seen in the image above) to go with our theme you can read about in the next paragraph. Our first donors for the silent auction, Black Sand Publishing, are graciously printing the incredible work of art Heather created and you can bid to have it blueing up your home.
This year we “Keep It Blue” – our themed night focuses on our intent to keep our oceans healthy for the enjoyment of generations into the future. In celebrating another incredible year of service by our volunteers and chapter leaders, we ask all guests to unite in our theme by wearing their favorite shades of Blue.
Please join us for a night filled with festive music, delicious food, lively libations, live art and entertainment, premier silent auction, and the company of our amazing community. Dance through the night with amazing beats from the soulful funky grooves of Good Foot. Your support will ensure that Surfrider Foundation’s O‘ahu Chapter continues its mission of working to protect our world’s oceans, beaches, and waves.
