The Valpo Surf Project is a non-profit organization that uses surfing as a tool to engage at-risk and underprivileged inner-city youth in Valparaiso, Chile. Valpo is having a silent auction and fundraiser over at Saturdays NYC this Friday, Oct. 15th. All proceeds go directly to support Valpo’s mission. In addition to the auction, they will be screening surf flicks. so bring a friend.
The auction features the items and art by a host of cool peeps: Thomas Campbell, Brainstorm Print and Design, Matt Caputo, Dubworks.com, Virginia Lunt, Kathryn Armstrong, Jacob Bluestone, Chronicle Books, Dion Agius and others.
