SIMA Waterman’s Weekend Coming July 28th and 29th
For over three decades, SIMA Waterman’s Weekend has been a driving force behind environmental efforts to protect our oceans, surf breaks, and combat plastic pollution. Having raised nearly $10 million since its inception in 1989, the event continues to support beneficiaries dedicated to preserving our marine ecosystems. This year, the gala and luau aim to raise $250,000 for more than a dozen ocean conservation groups, cementing its status as a significant contributor to environmental causes.
This year the weekend kicks off with a Luau on Friday evening and commences with a Gala on Saturday.
