Fund Raising Event at
111 Minna Club is
a Huge Success

Rare and unseen surf footage was showcased at 111 Minna in San Francisco on August 25, 2005. The event was a fund raiser for the new documentary film "Great Highway," a chronicle of the history of surfing in the challenging conditions of the Bay Area. The event drew over 500 people over the course of the evening, many of whom are deeply rooted in the local surf community. "We were really happy that so many surfers showed up from the surrounding area. This was a reunion for some surfers who hadn't seen each other in years. It was a lot of fun!" said Mark Gunson of Bay Area Surf Productions.

The program included a look at some rare Fred Windisch footage, a new surf movie titled "The NorCal Project" and the premiere of the trailer for the documentary "Great Highway." The event was hosted by Bay Area Surf Productions and Tribalsurf. Also featured at the event was a gallery of beautiful photographs by Don Montgomery, Elizabeth Pepin and Chuck Lantz. Some top quality surf gear, clothes and accessories were raffled off from NorCal Surf Shop, Aqua Surf Shop, Wise Surf Shop, Sonlight Surf Shop, Neptune Surfboards and many more. Music spun by Jim Deasy.

Bay Area Surf Productions is a video production company that gives proceeds from film and video projects to local environmental, historical and coastal preservation organizations. The documentary film "Great Highway" will benefit local Surfrider Foundation chapters and the O'Neill Sea Odyssey.
