Luau and Legends Surf Invitational: Over $9 Million Raised For San Diego Cancer Research

Kickoff celebration Feb 13 @ Belly Up

January 23, 2019

Each summer at Scripps Pier, legends of surfing along with biotech leaders and cancer survivors, come together to participate in an annual surf contest and luau event that has raised over $9MM to benefit Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego Health —the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center in our region, and one of only 49 in the U.S.

To set the tone and build event momentum, a special "Kick-Off" celebration takes place in the Winter/Spring to thank past sponsors as well as invite new supporters and participants. Unlike year's past, the 2019 Kick-Off event is now Open to All ages 21+! Our hope is to fill the room and share our collective support in the fight against cancer.
