Latitude 33, a 122-unit modern beach-inspired development in Marina del Rey, and Angeleno magazine will hold a fundraiser event Wednesday, March 30, including an auction of artist-made surfboards, in support of Heal the Bay.
Event organizers said that in honor of the local vibrant art and music experience of the Venice Beach Boardwalk, the fundraiser will feature an auction of “one-of-a-kind” surfboards handmade by eight well-known artists. In addition, the local roots rock band The Makepeace Brothers will perform a live acoustic show.
The fundraiser is scheduled from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at Latitute 33, 330 Washington Blvd., Marina del Rey.
The event proceeds will benefit the Santa Monica-based environmental organization Heal the Bay and its efforts to keep local waterways clean.
The surfboards up for auction were created by artists Damon Johnson, Greg Miller, Muramasa Kudo, Tony Larson, Deedee Cheriel, Man One, Scott MacDonough and JRF. The auction is curated in conjunction with Culture Shock Marketing.
Prior to the March 30 event, one surfboard was placed for auction online at www.charitybuzz.com. Participants will be able to place bids on the board through March 30. Bidding started at $1,000 and will increase in $250 increments until the board is sold.
Also at the event, Linus Bikes, purveyor of the French inspired utilitarian city bike, will auction off a bike. Aviator Nation, the vintage T-shirt line, will conduct informal modeling of its clothing pieces and furnish the closets in the BOARDWALK model unit at Latitude 33.
