The event will raise funds and awareness to support the children in our community. Breakfast will be complimentary but donations will be encouraged. First District Supervisor, Salud Carbajal will emcee the event and our guest speaker, world champion surfer, Shaun Tomson will share insights into “The Surfer’s Code”. Breakfast will take place at the Boys & Girls Club on 632 East Canon Perdido St.
