To celebrate the start of the summer patio season Canoe Brewpub teams up with Surfrider Vancouver Island to host a Summer Soirée tonight.

The evening is a celebration of The Truffles Group community program, which raised over $8,800.00 during 2018 to help fund the local efforts by the Surfrider Foundation’s Chapter on Vancouver Island. During 2018, The Truffles Group raised over $28,000 to support a variety of community programs on Vancouver Island.

Founded 25 years ago in Malibu California, the Surfrider Foundation’s mission is the protection and enjoyment of oceans, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
