One Ocean Events
One Ocean - A benefit for The Surfrider Foundation
At Surfrider, we believe that when people come together as one, we have the power to make a difference for the protection of our ocean, waves and beaches. Our events are designed to raise awareness and funds to support our dedicated and effective network of passionate activists working around the nation. We are one Surfrider, protecting one ocean and one planet.
Each year, in July and October, more than 300 guests gather at the One Ocean events. The lively events are held in New York in the summer, at a beautiful outdoor venue in Montauk overlooking Fort Pond Bay, and California in the fall. The California event is held at the eco-friendly farm, the Ecology Center, where attendees are invited to bid on specialty items at a silent auction and enjoy a cocktail hour, gourmet seated dinner curated by a celebrity chef, a lively auction and live performances by world class musicians.
In recent years, guests have enjoyed intimate musical performances by Lukas Nelson, Jack Johnson, Portugal. The Man, Wild Belle, and Rayland Baxter.
