Tomorrow night a friend of mine is hosting a very great fundraiser to raise funds for Hurricane Sandy victims. The event doesn’t have much to do with surfing but as you all should know we’re based out of Long Island and a lot of our friends and loved ones were effected by the storm this past October. The fundraiser will take place at the Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden in Astoria, Queens and along with great drink specials there will be a silent art auction, great raffles and more. The best part, a good amount of the proceeds will be donated to a handful of local charities.
