Over the last eight years Wine, Waves & Beyond has raised over $200,000 for local non-profit organizations. Proceeds from this year’s event benefited our own GleanSLO program.
This was the fourth year in a row that GleanSLO was the benefactor. The Still Frothy Surf Festival, a major sponsor of Wine, Waves & Beyond, is a contest created to motivate California’s youths to turn off their computers and video games and discover surfing. More sponsors of the 8th Annual Wine Waves & Beyond included Boutique Hotel Collection, Rabobank, City of Pismo Beach, New Times, KCOY, Paso Robles Wine Country, and SLO International Film Festival. When all was said and done, GleanSLO received $32,640 which included a generous donation from Rabobank.
Wine, Waves & Beyond celebrates the best that Classic California has to offer. Participants enjoy three days of unforgettable events that embrace the love of California’s traditional surfing lifestyle and culture along with exceptional wine and food. The experience includes Central Coast wines, artisan brews, local California farm-fresh and seaport-inspired cuisine, as well as great music, art, and the amiable coastal community. Wine, Waves & Beyond events take place at several scenic venues throughout Pismo Beach and at the Fremont Theatre in San Luis Obispo.
