Now it is 25th year, Moores Cancer Center Luau & Legends of Surfing Invitational has become one of the most successful surfing fundraisers and has donated over $8 MILLION to the Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego.
The day begins at the beach below Scripps Pier with a surfing tournament where the emphasis is on participation and support for the cause rather than an individual’s surfing ability. Each of the sponsored teams will be paired with a surfing legend and vie for traditional trophies.
The Luau festivities commence under tents where more than 500 attendees enjoy traditional Polynesian dancing and live music while dining at a tropical buffet. Guests may opt to participate in opportunity drawings, the silent auction, or test their bidding skills against each other as “one-of-a-kind” pieces of surf-inspired artwork, exceptional surfboards, and vacation packages are put up for live auction. Always a crowd favorite! To close the day, the memorable Rell Sunn Award is presented.
