The UCSD luau and longboard invitational. This is the 19th year of this Invitational Tournament in La Jolla Shores at Scripps Pier. They’ve raised over $ 5M for cancer research, benefitting UC SAN DIEGO MOORES CANCER CENTER
and had a lot of fun in the bargain. Visit http://www.luauandlegendsofsurfing.org/ for full details. The day begins at the beach below Scripps Pier with a surfing tournament where the emphasis is on participation and support for the cause rather than an individual’s surfing ability. Each of the sponsored teams will be paired with a surfing legend and vie for traditional trophies. Click here to sponsor a team for the contest.
The Luau festivities commence under tents where more than 500 attendees enjoy traditional Polynesian dancing and live music while dining at a tropical buffet. Guests may opt to participate in opportunity drawings, the silent auction, or test their bidding skills against each other as “one-of-a-kind” pieces of surf-inspired artwork, exceptional surfboards, and vacation packages are put up for live auction. Always a crowd favorite! To close the day, the memorable Rell Sunn Award is presented. Thanks to our generous donors, we have so many unique, custom, one-of-a-kind auction items lined up that you won’t want to miss out on for this year’s raffle, live auction, and silent auction.
