Aaron Chang Gallery Teams up with SurfAid for a solid cause

The Aaron Chang Gallery was the chosen venue for SurfAid International's fundraiser event on July 2nd. The mission of SurfAid International, a non-profit humanitarian organization, is to improve the health, wellbeing and self-reliance of people living in isolated regions connected to us through surfing.  

In attendance were local as well as international surfers and industry folks; key philanthropists, local business owners and of course the dynamic speaker and SurfAid medical expert, Dr. Dave Jenkins. Ralph Rubio, owner of Rubio's Restaurants and a SurfAid supporter, was in attendence and provided the food for the event. Beer was generously provided by Paul of Primo Beer. Wine was provided by Wild Rock Wineries of New Zealand.  
With well over 5K in sales that evening, Aaron Chang donated 10% of all of the evening's sales to SurfAid International in addition to the individual donation support given by several of the event's attendees.
