Surfer's Healing Fundraiser
You know we are big on Surfer's Healing, right? Man, what an awesome organization. Surfers Healing was founded by Israel and Danielle Paskowitz. Their son, Isaiah, was diagnosed with autism at age three. Like many autistic children, he often suffered from sensory overload-- simple sensations could overwhelm him. The ocean was the one place where he seemed to find respite.
A former competitive surfer, Israel hit upon an idea--with Isaiah on the front of his surfboard, and Izzy steering from the back, the two spent the day surfing together. Surfing had a profound impact on Isaiah. Israel and Danielle decided they wanted to share this unique therapy with other autistic children. They began to host day camps at the beach where autistic children and their families could be exposed to a completely new experience of surfing.
We are having a big old fundraiser down at Grand Union Pub on Sunday March 13, 2011, 11:30 AM - 10:00 PM.
We'd sure love to see you there and you can help a group group of people help autistic kids. There's going to be a raffle, live music food, drinks and fun so come on out and help us raise a little bank for Surfer's Healing.
