Join Share the Stoke Foundation for the ultimate bar crawl this Sunday, April 19, for the second annual Putt and Strut. Setup in downtown West Palm Beach, nine unique putt-putt holes have been designed and by bars dotting Clematis Street, making for one of the noisier, and exciting, front nines in town. Foursomes are tasked to putt their way down the street from 2-5 p.m. in what is sure to be the best mini-golf courses around. Following golf, E.R. Bradley’s Saloon will be hosting an after party, sponsored by Surfr app, with Spred the Dub on tap to jam at 6 p.m. and a pretty excellent array of goodies up for grab in a raffle.
All proceeds from Putt and Strut will benefit STSF’s programming. The goal behind the organization is to change the world, one surfboard at a time, by giving deserving kids around the world new and used surfboards. The price of a surfboard can be downright exorbitant, even for a used stick; for many kids, owning their own ride is simply out of the question. The onus behind STSF gets kids and teens off the streets and in the water by giving them a free board, but only after they take a pledge to stick with school and become better stewards of our seas. By targeting active youth organizations around the globe that are dedicated to keeping kids in school, STSF helps foster a sense of community and responsibility, not just with each other, but with Mother Nature—there is no surf without a healthy beach—while helping build discipline and develop leadership qualities through the power of surf.
Jamaica Project: One of the boards donated by Share the Stoke Foundation is in good hands down in Jamaica with this cat shredding up Bull Bay.
Founded by Lake Worth resident Kelly Kingston, what started as a failed attempt to sell a used board on Craigslist has transformed into a global initiative that not only fosters a sense of personal responsibility and stewardship, but also is helping broken down boards find new life with some pretty fantastic kids instead of landing in the landfill. To date, STSF has given away hundreds of boards to kids across the US, the Caribbean, Central and South America, including Haiti, Costa Rica, Colombia and Cuba, as well as across the pond in South Africa and Bangladesh, just to name a few.
Join the fun and put some stoke in that putt this Sunday. Golf costs $20 per person, $80 for a foursome. The party starts at 2 p.m. on Clematis Street—check-in is at Logan Realty (333 Clematis St., Suite 201), with an after party happening at E.R. Bradley’s Saloon at 5 p.m. Golfers will enjoy food and drink specials throughout the day. For more information and to register, visit sharethestokefoundation.com.
