Surfers, scientists and survivors come together to support the fight against cancer at the annual Luau and Legends of Surfing Invitational at the beach near Scripps Pier in La Jolla.
Now in its 26th year, The University of California San Diego fundraiser kicks off at 7:00 AM, when teams of four will be paired with a surf legend for a friendly competition that draws surf legends from around the world, followed by a festive luau with musical entertainment, a tropical buffet, and live and silent auctions featuring surf-inspired artwork, unique surfboards and vacation packages.
All proceeds benefit research and patient care at Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health. In addition to raising funds, the Luau celebrates the advances made in cancer research and patient care, and recognizes individuals who have contributed to the progress.
The surfing competition is free for spectators.
