Benefit Reception
Friday, October 5th, 2018 - 5:30 -10:00pm

Our "lineup" includes Beda's and Helga's fabulous cuisine at the Avila Valley Barn with dessert generiously donated by Avila Valley Barn. The evening will also feature great local brews, fine wines and both live and silent surf themed auction with auctioneer Cody Dawson.  Along with our beloved Tom Brown from Surfing for Life, the evening will focus around a tribute to Mike Spangler and Ryan Teixeira.  

All benefit reception ticket holders are invited to the optional memorial paddle out (even just to watch). Paddlers and observers will meet on the beach at 4:00pm in front of the Avila Lighthouse Suites pool for a memorial service led by David Ybarra. The reception at the Barn officially starts at 6:00 pm but our guests are encouraged to come early to the beach and experience the memorial paddle out. On your registration please let us know if you are interested in the free vintage VW bus shuttles will be available between the beach and Avila Valley Barn courtesy of Mike Crowder (Central Coast Chapter of Vintage VW Club of America).

Live music will be preformed by the “Agave Stump Jumpers” comprised of Che Miller on lead vocals, mandolin and guitar, Alan Vogan on lead vocals, mandolin and guitar, Kurt Michaels on percussion and Colleen Gnos on upright bass.

This event sold out last year, so we encourage you to purchase your benefit reception tickets early. Tickets may not be available at the door.
