|Switchfoot “Bro-Am” Charity Event Unites Surf Community
06 June 2005
Switchfoot’s hometown “Bro-Am” charity event—a surfing contest held this month to raise money for Care House, a San Diego organization serving homeless kids—“has exceeded any of our expectations,” said the band’s lead singer and guitarist, Jonathan Foreman.
Bro-Am sponsors gave homeless kids a great day at the beach, providing free shoes and clothes, surf lessons and INT foam boards, Taylor guitars and guitar lessons, and most of all: a chance to dream.
Following the local surfing contest, Switchfoot—a band named after a surfing term—gave a free concert for the sponsors, participants, and Care House kids.
“To all of the teams and sponsors, thank you for joining us in giving back to some amazing people who truly deserve our love, support and respect…The Care House kids learned how to surf and play the guitar and they taught me how to dance,” Foreman said.
