The Switchfoot Bro-Am surf contest and concert returns to Moonlight Beach in Encinitas on Saturday, June 16. An annual event near and dear to Switchfoot’s heart, the Bro-Am was created to give back to the San Diego community while also benefiting local at-risk youth. Since its inception in 2005, the Bro-Am has raised more than $515,000 for San Diego-based children’s charities (www.switchfoot.com/c/bro-am).
On Thursday, June 14, at 6 p.m. (VIP 5 p.m.), as a kickoff to the 8th Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am presented by Hurley, the community is invited to join Switchfoot at The Crosby at Rancho Santa Fe for the Bro-Am Auction Night Soiree. The festive event will benefit StandUp For Kids, a national nonprofit volunteer outreach organization founded in San Diego dedicated to making a difference in the lives of at-risk, homeless, and street kids.
The evening will feature a “taste of San Diego” format, and guests will savor signature dishes from the area’s leading restaurants.
Attendees will also enjoy an exclusive live performance, awe-inspiring entertainment by mentalist Lior Suchard, opportunity drawings, and fantastic silent and live auctions featuring Switchfoot’s own Drew Shirley as auctioneer and emcee.
“The Bro-Am has been my favorite time of the year ever since we started it back in ’05,” notes Switchfoot’s Jon Foreman. “To see our hometown come together to help out a deserving group of kids is an incredible experience. We feel truly honored to again partner with StandUp For Kids, an incredible organization serving at-risk youth here in San Diego and across the country. Last year was our biggest year ever, and we hope to top it again this year.”
Tickets are limited, and are $150 per person. VIP tickets are $225 per person, and include a VIP reception and meet & greet with Switchfoot.
Tickets: $150 each, or $225 for VIP, available via www.switchfoot.com/c/bro-am
