Welcome to the 2019 John Kelly Awards!
Surfrider Foundation’s Oahu Chapter would like to invite you to our 17th Annual John Kelly Awards Celebration at beautiful Waimea Valley on November 16th, 2019. The annual fundraiser and awards ceremony honors leaders in environmental protection and pays tribute to the memory of legendary community organizer and activist, John Kelly of Save Our Surf. This annual recognition is awarded to recipients in the following four categories who embody the spirit, mana, and dedication of Mr. John Kelly: local surfer/waterperson, local business, non-profit, and lifetime achievement (see the list of our inspirational previous winner below).
Please join us for a night filled with festive music, delicious food, lively libations, live art and entertainment, premier silent auction, and the company of our amazing community!
As our island and coastlines continue to feel the impact of increasing urbanization and climate change, your support in our mission has never been more important. We deeply appreciate your attendance and enthusiasm in support of Surfrider Oahu.
Mahalo for your generosity and support!!
