Imagine a picturesque evening beneath a canopy of stars, where the gentle whispers of the Atlantic combine with captivating visuals and the shared camaraderie of fellow beach lovers. The Surfrider Foundation Eastern Long Island Chapter invites you to an enthralling experience.
Held at the scenic Southampton Arts Center, the lush lawns will transform into a cinematic oasis on Friday, September 15, 2023. But if Mother Nature has other plans, don’t fret! The rain date is set for Sunday, September 17, 2023.
The evening is not just about films. As the doors open at 5:00 pm, attendees will be welcomed with the melodious tunes of Souliztik, setting the perfect mood for an evening by the beach. With an array of local vendors at your service, satiate your cravings with refreshments from the likes of Westhampton Beach Brewing Co., The Groovy Smoothie, and The Good Bickle. And while your taste buds enjoy a feast, your minds can revel in a series of short surf and ocean films.
Beyond the merriment and festivities lies a profound cause. The Surf Movie Night stands as Surfrider Eastern Long Island’s flagship annual fundraiser. Over the years, the proceeds from these events have channeled into initiatives combating plastic pollution, championing clean water, and preserving our precious coastlines. The dedicated efforts of Jenna Schwerzmann, the chapter coordinator for the Eastern Long Island Chapter, along with her team, have been instrumental in driving these campaigns to fruition.
But the journey doesn’t stop here. By joining hands for Surf Movie Night, you’re not just buying a ticket to a movie night; you’re advocating for the beaches we love, the waters we cherish, and the environment we owe so much to. Whether you’re a surfer catching the next big wave or a beachgoer who loves the feel of sand beneath your feet, this is your call to action.
Remember, every ripple creates a wave. Support the Surfrider Foundation Eastern Long Island by not only attending but by considering sponsorship for this incredible night. Every ounce of support makes a difference. So, mark your calendars and be part of the change wave!
