Barefoot Wine is really working hard to push this clean up the oceans thing this summer. First, they partner with Tristan Prettyman to host concerts and beach cleanups. Now they're partnering with hunky celebs to get them to take their shoes and their tops off to raise money for Surfrider. Last weekend Jason Mraz, Flea, Noodles, Chad Lowe, Sal Masekela, Richard Burgi, Peter DiStefano, Brandon Cruz, and David Chokachi all paddled out last saturday for the Barefoot Wine Surfrider Foundation Celebrity Expression Session.
The event was free and open to the public, and cheers went up for every wave caught because that was another $50 donation by Barefoot. In total, over $4,000 USD was raised for the Surfrider Foundation. Almost 2,000 people attended the event, hung out on the beach in Malibu, watched the celebs and caught a few waves themselves. The event was also sponsored by Project Blue. Barefoot Wine has already donated over $125,000 to Surfrider this year. Who knows where Barefoot Wine and their ocean conservation crew will show up next?
