Life is a Wave Gala at The Dream Inn

A huge thank you to everyone who attended Save The Waves‘ annual gala ‘Life Is A Wave’ last Thursday! This was the first year the gala was hosted in Santa Cruz, California and marked a hometown return for the nonprofit group. Overlooking the Santa Cruz World Surfing Reserve and Cowells Beach from The Dream Inn, the evening’s event hosted a cocktail hour, silent and live auction, seated dinner, as well as the Wave Saver of the Year Awards. This year’s recipients were Bianca Valenti for Athlete of the Year, Klean Kanteen for Business of the Year, and Reece Pacheco for Environmentalist of the Year. As a fundraiser for Save The Waves’ conservation program, ‘Life Is A Wave’ raised over 100K to protect and preserve coastlines around the world.
