Wood Vibes Only Event
The project ‘Vanderful Rome’, in collaboration with Surf4Children and Danny’s Point in Santa Marinella, Italy, culminated on Tuesday 31st of August 2021.
On Tuesday 31st of August, Vanderful celebrated the culmination of the ‘Vanderful Rome Project’. The day began with Surf4children’s usual surf lessons with Banzai Surf School . Unfortunately, due to the lack of swell, the Alaia contest couldn’t go ahead. The participants and their families had fun reflecting on their summer, whilst the staff from Danny’s Point with the help of Federico, started up the grill.
Once everyone was fed and watered, after a few unavoidable delays, the Vanderful team held a presentation, a raffle and an auction in effort to fundraise to return to Africa next year! It was a splendid evening, celebrating the success of the project, the achievements of the incredible participants and the generous support of their families and our collaborators.
The biggest thank you goes to the family of @sofi_acalcagni for not only hosting our team, feeding us, looking after the @paulowniaitaly trees, but also for Sofi’s amazing presentation about the Surf Craftsmanship workshop.
Another big thank you to Augusto, Angelo’s brother, for selling our merchandise and his amazing auctioneering skills!
We are extremely proud and grateful to announce that, with the help of Paulownia Italy, Click, Surf4Children , Danny’s Point and of course our participants and their families, we managed to fundraise a total of €2081.40!
Thank you to everyone for your support and encouragement, we are another step closer to returning to Africa next year!
Give children the chance to play.
