For the second year running, Grace Farm is proud to support a team of young bucks (including our viticulturist Tim Quinlan) to compete in the SurfAid Corporate Cup, a surfing competition held during the Drug Aware Margaret River Pro. Last year was a great success, with the team raising over $8,000 for Surfaid and getting to surf alongside some of the world’s best in towering waves (last year's team is pictured above with 2001 World Champion CJ Hobgood).
SurfAid is a charity organisation that is primarily focused on improving the standard of living in impoverished island communities in Indonesia, particularly mother-child health. The latest Indonesian statistics show that every three hours a mother dies in childbirth, while every hour 20 babies die.
Grace Farm is supporting the team in a number of fundraising efforts for Surfaid over the coming months including:
- One of the team members (Angus Firth) to swam 19.7kms solo to Rottnest Island
- On the 28th of March Grace Farm will host a sundowner in the garden showcasing beautiful Grace Farm wine, gourmet food, regionally brewed beer and live music. You can purchase a ticket for $80 by emailing Phoebe at firstname.lastname@example.org, with all proceeds going to SurfAid.
The team includes Grace Farm regulars, Chris MacKinnon, Angus Firth, Richard Gardner and this year Grace Farm's viticulturist and vineyard manager, Tim Quinlan, replaces George Mair. You can DONATE HERE.
