August 27 it was the weekend of the Waterman's
Ball, an annual event from SIMA.
It is a very important event in the Surf Industry
that happened at the St. Regis Hotel here in
Dana Point, Orange County. Mike Bless (pictured
below) was invited to have his art there for
the auction. He believes so strongly in this
organizaion's mission that he donated a table
and a board wtih custom metal rack for display.
All the money from the auction goes to environmental
is not only about money -- it's about time.
We enjoy jumping in to help these organizations at
special events throughout the year. I don't know who
benefits more -- us or them.
Anyone can make a difference -- it just takes a little
time and a lot of heart.
