Point Loma Surf Movie Premiere and Fundraiser of “Calling on Others: Bali, Indonesia”

Ocean Beach Surf and Skate and The Pearl Hotel are joining forces to host a special fundraising event and movie premiere of Calling on Others: Bali, Indonesia on Tuesday, February 22, 2011. The event will be a special feature for the monthly surf movie event, Surf on the Silver Screen, and will kick off at 7 p.m. at The Pearl Hotel.

Calling on Others is a film project headed by San Diego natives, Scott LeDuc and Andrew Matthews that aims to raise money for underprivileged surfers to continue their education. The project and scholarship fund idea was inspired during a six-week trip LeDuc and Matthews took to Bali, Indonesia in 2009. What began as a surfing expedition quickly became much more when they met four, local talented surfers whose aspirations to stay in school seemed a far-fetched dream. Together, LeDuc and Matthews created the short film, Calling on Others: Bali, Indonesia, which follows the lives of these four boys, in hopes to raise money so that their dream to further their education can become a reality.
In addition to the movie premiere and to aid in fundraising efforts, this event will feature a large raffle with extra-special prizes from:
Guests will also enjoy exclusive food and drink specials from The Pearl Hotel, a live painting exhibit by artist Bryan Palacios and a blue-carpet press wall where they can get professional photos taken to document this fun-filled night.
Ocean Beach Surf and Skate and The Pearl Hotel invite guests of all ages to this karma-filled adventure on the silver screen to help raise money for those who need it most. Admission is free and open to the public. Blue carpet photos, live painting, pre-premiere cocktails, raffle sales and seating will begin at 7 p.m., with the premiere showing at 8 p.m. and the raffle drawing following immediately after.
