The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel's Holiday Surfboard Auction benefiting Surfers Healing
The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel presents the Annual Holiday Surfboard Auction, a benefit for Surfers Healing. Honoring the resort's community footprints and supporting worthy causes, this seasonal holiday auction supports Surfers Healing, a nonprofit that provides the gift of surfing to children with autism.
This year's auction showcases over a dozen amazing surfboards donated by renowned artists, famous musicians and celebrities, and surf industry greats. The auction is an opportunity to purchase a beautiful piece of art or a new surfboard, but to do it knowing you're helping support Surfers Healing.
The auction ends at 5 p.m. (PST) on Tuesday, December 31, 2019.
Surfers Healing - A Foundation for Autism
Surfers Healing serves thousands; however, their mission exists because of one child. Izzy and Danielle Paskowitz founded Surfers Healing because of their son Isaiah. Isaiah has autism and when he struggled with meltdowns and sensory overload, riding the waves with his father calmed him like nothing else. Not everyone has a championship surfer for a dad, so the Paskowitz family invited others to join them at the beach. Their idea caught on, and now Surfers Healing is a nationwide, grassroots nonprofit. They are the original surf camp for children with autism and all of their events are free. Even though autism now affects 1 in 59 children in the U.S. - Surfers Healing doesn't think in thousands. They think in ones, because that's where they can effect change. One child. One family. One day at the beach.
