Intrigued? Here's more:
Surfers Healing brings professional surfers to Charleston to teach autistic children surﬁng skills as a form of therapy. The Surfers Healing Charleston Chapter has hosted this event for the past 2 years and hopes to raise enough money to continue. "The surfers displayed their experience and understanding with the disorder throughout the day", said Lorri Unumb, who works with the research and advocacy group Autism Speaks. "They've worked with a lot of kids with autism and know what to do," said Unumb, whose 8-year-old son Ryan has autism. Ryan authored South Carolina's "Ryan's Law" that requires state-regulated insurance companies to cover autism treatment.
All it takes is $20 to change a life. Your $20 donation to Surfers Healing will allow you to mingle with Charleston’s most charitable fashionistas, watch two CFW veterans debut their Spring Collections, sip on 10 Cane Rum’s specialty cocktails, participate in the silent auction, and you will be eligible to win tons of ﬁlled with local goodies.
