To Benefit the Underprivileged Children of Costa Rica
Surfers, Golf fanatics, community supporters and Robert August fan’s alike, we would like to send a special invitation to you to join us in supporting a good cause while having fun for the 13th Annual Robert August “Surf n Turf” Charity Challenge!
100% of this tournament profits are donated to CEPIA, to help the children of the shelter in Santa Cruz, to improve schools, to organize sports and educational activities for the children of public schools in this area, to prevent teenagers participating in gangs, violence, robberies, and to offer psychology services to the children victims.
History of the Robert August “Surf n Turf”
Since filming the Endless Summer II here in Tamarindo, Robert fell in love with the people, place and waves and returned frequently with his friends. Over the years with the time they spent here, Robert and friends built strong friendships, became closer to the community and felt they wanted to give back somehow. One year when Robert returned with the cast to film Step into Liquid, they came up with the concept of raising money for the community and what better way than to do what they love to do most – Golf and Surf in paradise!
13 years later Robert has generated over $200,000 worth of fundraising efforts for: the Orphanage of Santa Cruz, Costa Rica (Patronato Nacional de la Infancia or PANI), The Grammar School at Villa Real Costa Rica, The Lifeguards of Tamarindo, and the past six years CEPIA.
“Surf n Turf” Format
This year’s event format is a shot gun start, four-man scramble Golf tournament and best of four Surf contest. The best score from each team of Golf and/or Surf is calculated together at the end of the charity challenge for the best overall score and bragging rights of Surf n Turf Champs!
