This ‘Environmental Benefit Dinner’ will serve as the kickoff to a series of three events we will be doing to fundraise for the local Rincón chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. Funds raised will go towards fulfilling the chapter’s ongoing mission and efforts to restore, protect, and conserve the community’s precious natural resources. Additionally, these events are being organized to raise awareness about the importance of grassroots activism, community participation, the importance of protecting Puerto Rico’s environment. The second event will take place after Earth Day on Saturday, April 24th, and the last event will be held on International Surfing Day on Sunday, June 20th, 2010. More details, including the times and locations will be announced in the coming weeks.

This particular event is being sponsored by over 10 restaurants and businesses in Rincon. Food will be served from 5 until 730pm with live music provided by 'Roots Militia' to follow. We will be accepting a minimum entrance fee of $15 dollars at the door. Come enjoy the fun!
