Barefoot Wine Presents a Free Beach Concert to Benefit the Surfrider Foundation

MODESTO, Calif. — Barefoot Wine is proud to present the Beach Rescue Concert benefitting the Surfrider Foundation. Music and beach lovers are invited to a free concert being held in Asbury Park, NJ on Saturday, August 29, 2009. Special performances by musical guests who support the cause include Joss Stone, Gavin DeGraw, Cold War Kids and Mason Jennings.

To help celebrate Surfrider Foundation's 25th anniversary, Barefoot Wine and the Surfrider Foundation have spent the summer traveling coast-to-coast cleaning and restoring 25 beaches and lakes with the help of more than 2,000 volunteers as part of their Beach Rescue Project, now in its third year. The final cleanup of the summer will take place on the Asbury Park shore prior to the benefit concert. Those volunteers who attend the beach cleanup will receive special "VIP" privileges, including entry to the VIP Lounge, complimentary food and beverage and priority views of the stage. The cleanup event is free and open to everyone; free tickets to the concert are available to those 21+ years old and must be obtained by visiting the Web site by noon on August 29th or while tickets last. All wine sales from the concert will benefit the Surfrider Foundation to support their strategic initiatives to preserve special places.

"We raise our glass to our friends at the Surfrider Foundation and congratulate them on their tireless efforts to protect our beaches," said Tanvee Mehra of Barefoot Wine. "We are looking forward to rocking out with the amazing lineup of beach-loving musicians and volunteers who are helping to raise awareness for such a great cause."

To ensure environmental greening efforts are met at the Beach Rescue Concert, Reverb, the non-profit organization that educates and engages musicians and their fans to take action toward a more sustainable future, is handling on-site greening logistics and online fan outreach.

The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots environmental organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world's oceans, waves and beaches. Now in its 25th year, the Surfrider Foundation has grown from a small group of dedicated surfers in Malibu, California to a global movement made up of over 50,000 members and 90 chapters worldwide.

Volunteering can be so much more than tedious work in support of a good cause. It can be engaging and rewarding. Barefoot Wine has created the ultimate volunteer experience with their summer concerts. As they travel across the nation, Barefoot Wine brings communities together to clean and restore local beaches and then celebrate with a free concert. And just in case that wasn't enough to inspire you to get involved, all the wine purchased at the event supports the Surfrider Foundation.
