Surfrider Foundation Vancouver is excited to share that we’ll be hosting a virtual art auction fundraiser from April 22nd to 30th. Engaging our powerful and passionate community with initiatives that help protect the oceans is one of our main goals here at Surfrider. And with our in-person beach cleanups and events on hold, we’re excited to bring together our community virtually.

Surfrider’s art auction fundraiser will kick off on Earth Day on April 22nd and run for nine days. This is the perfect way to show your support for your local oceans and coastlines and celebrate Earth Day!

On April 30th, we’ll be ending things off with a virtual gala to connect with the artists in their studios and workspaces (show your support for our oceans and sign up here!). We’re excited to be featuring work from over 20 artists from across Vancouver, the Gulf Islands, and more at Surfrider’s art auction fundraiser to help celebrate and protect our oceans and coastlines.

The auction will help fundraise for Surfrider Vancouver’s clean-up efforts and programs while bringing together our incredible community of artists, activists, community members, and ocean lovers. All proceeds will go towards both the artists involved and Surfrider’s critical work to protect our local coastlines.
