Celebrity Surf Day 2017

Surf Emporium Press Release
08 August 2017

Join in on the annual Surf Emporium Celebrity Surf Day in aid of Missing Children South Africa

The sad reality in South Africa is that a child goes missing every five hours, according to figures released by the South African Police Service Missing Persons. Missing Children South Africa (referred to as MCSA) is a registered non-profit organisation who devote their time to bringing these missing children home safely. Fortunately, according to Missing Children South Africa’s statistics, 77% of children are found. Sadly, this still leaves them with at least 23% of the children not being located, largely attributed to huge budget restraints.

On Saturday, 09 September 2017, Surf Emporium Muizenberg will host their annual Celebrity Surf Day to raise funds for MCSA in order to assist them in their incredible mission, whereby all proceeds are donated to MCSA. We will have a total of 100 spots available for a fun, group surf lesson!

Ever dreamed of surfing with some of your favourite SA celebs? Well now you can! Sign up to Surf Emporium’s Celebrity Surf Day now and surf with some of SA’s top athletes, comedians & even surfers!

People can get involved in 4 easy ways, namely:

1. Sign up for a 1.5 hour surf lesson with a team of South African celebrities!

– Only R3990 for a group booking of 10 employees/clients.

**If your office is too big, you can secure more than one group booking to separate your departments for some friendly competition! Even better yet, invite your clients to get involved as a year-end gesture!

2. Sponsoring a child from Waves 4 Change and allowing them the opportunity to surf with the group of celebrities
Sponsor a child from Waves for Change the opportunity to participate in the lesson above. People can also make a “donation” of an amount of their choice, knowing that R399 gives one child a place but if there are smaller donations it adds to towards a child’s place. 100% of the donation goes to MCSA.

3. Purchasing memorabilia that has been donated where 100% of the sale will go to MCSA
Purchasing a variety of memorabilia items on sale. 100% of the sale goes to MCSA. These items will go on display in the Surf Emporium Surf School front window as soon as we have them.

4. Donating R100 to MCSA
Simply donate R100 where 100% of the sale goes to MCSA. You will then automatically stand a chance to win one of our very many partner donations. These donation prizes will also be on display at the store for people to see what they can win.

All of the above can be purchased online or in-store.
