Once again, Barefoot Wine and Bubbly teamed up with the Newport Chapter for a successful weekend at the Seafood and Wine Festival. Thanks to the coordination and massive support of Rachel Swanson and other Barefoot staff, this year’s event raised $7200 benefiting Newport, Portland, Siuslaw chapters and the South Coast organizing committee of the Surfrider Foundation. These funds are directly utilized by the chapters for water quality monitoring, beach clean up activities, educational and campaign work, all for the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches. Big shout out to our partners at Barefoot and all of the volunteers who donated their time and energy for this incredible event! Special thanks to Newport chapter vice chair, Beth Hawkyard and volunteer coordinator Stacy Polkowske for coordinating such a great event with all of our chapters engagement!

Our fearless Barefoot leaders, Danielle and Rachel!
