Putt & Strut | Share the Stoke Foundation
Come join our favorite South Florida nonprofit, Share the Stoke Foundation, on Sunday, April 19 from 2-8 p.m. for the second annual Putt and Strut. Essentially a pub crawl with miniature golf thrown into the mix, nine bars along Clematis Street in downtown West Palm Beach have created their own miniature golf holes. Pub-golfers (?) will bounce from bar to bar, hacking away for a good cause, all while enjoying some pretty great food and drink specials. Following the golfing, Surfr App will be throwing Share the Stoke an after party at E.R. Bradley’s Saloon, where awards will be handed out, Spred the Dub will take the stage, and a pretty sweet array of goodies will be up for auction, including a Flying Fish Handplane from yours truly, Makai Project. All proceeds from Putt and Strut will benefit Share the Stoke’s programming.
Stoke out on golf this Sunday and join Putt & Strut now. The cost is $20 per person, $80 for a team. The party starts at 2 p.m. on Clematis Street (check in is at Logan Realty – 333 Clematis St., Suite 201), with an after party happening at E.R. Bradley’s Saloon at 5 p.m. For more information, visit sharethestokefoundation.org; to register, click here.
The goal behind the organization is to change the world, one surfboard at a time, by giving deserving kids around the world new and used surfboards. Surfboards are damn expensive, and for many kids, owning one is simply a dream. Share the Stoke makes those dreams a reality, as well as helping guide kids toward a healthy respect for society and nature, by giving them a board of their own. The catch: pledge to stick with school and become better stewards of our seas, locally and abroad. By targeting active youth organizations around the globe that are dedicated to keeping kids in school, Share the Stoke helps foster a sense of community and responsibility, not just with each other, but with earth—there is no surf without a healthy beach—while helping build discipline and develop leadership qualities through the power of surf.
Founded by Lake Worth resident Kelly Kingston, what started as a failed attempt to sell a used board on Craigslist has transformed into a global initiative that not only fosters a sense of personal responsibility and stewardship, but also is helping broken down boards find new life with some pretty fantastic kids instead of landing in the landfill. Through multiple programs, including the Recycled Boar Program, Share the Stoke has given away hundreds of boards to kids across the US, the Caribbean, Central and South America, including Haiti, Costa Rica, Colombia and Cuba, as well as across the pond in South Africa and Bangladesh, just to name a few.
We totally admire this organization’s mission of sharing the stoke, so much so, that we have created a GiveBack Program, donating a portion of the sale of specially marked boards and handplanes to Share the Stoke. Click here to find out more.
