Switchfoot Host Surf Contest for Charity

Published: 2005-04-11
Mixing their two loves of surfing and music along with a helping of goodwill, San Diego rock quartet Switchfoot are set to host an event that will help raise money for Care House, an organization that serves homeless kids. Held on May 14th at San Diego's Moonlight Beach, "Switchfoot Bro-Am" is both a surfing contest and a concert, with every penny going towards Care House.

The surfing contest entrance fees run at $500 per four member team, but along with the chance to compete, entrants will receive 12 tickets to a Switchfoot concert and Bro-Am awards ceremony later in the day. That's pretty much the only way to get into the Switchfoot concert, for its being performed exclusively for surf contestants, radio winners, and Care House kids.

On top of the surf contest and concert, the "Switchfoot Bro-Am" team will be providing free shoes and clothes, surf lessons, and guitars plus the all-important guitar lessons for the homeless kids in attendance at the all-day event.

Recently certified double platinum in the United States, Switchfoot's latest disc is called "The Beautiful Letdown". Released in 2003, the 11-track album contains radio hits like "Meant To Live" and "Dare You To Move". For more information on "Switchfoot Bro-Am" go to http://switchfoot.com/bro-am/.
