The Sustainable Coastlines 1st Annual Fundraiser on February 9th at the Elks Lodge proved to be a huge success. The night-featured celebrity Hawaii Five-0 star Alex O’Loughlin, a Marine Debris Fashion Show, Silent Auction, and Local bands jamming the night away. UMU is very honored to add Sustainable Coastlines to our growing family. We really love their fresh, young, hip way of life and their passion for protecting our beaches. This event was a perfect representation of this. Check out the Sustainable Coastlines website: www.sustainablecoastlineshawii.org for more photos from the event.
Sustainable Coastlines main goal is to educate the community to care for the coastlines through hands on beach clean ups. Although this non-profit has done many great things for Oahu’s beaches and coastlines, the battle is far from over. This event helped raise awareness of what Sustainable Coastlines has accomplished in the past two years.
The First Annual Fundraiser raised over $14, 000 for Sustainable Coastlines (more than double their goal). It was an amazing event with a network of talented like-minded individuals who know how to have a good time. We are already looking forward to next year’s fundraiser. We will keep you posted!
