Hobie Heart :: California United

GIVEBACKFRIDAY

California United

Join us for Give Back Friday, Saturday, Sunday & Monday too.

As Californians, we’re all devastated by the recent fires. Sadly, we can never bring back the lives tragically lost, but… we have several clothing stores, and we’d like to do our small part with your help.

Hobie will donate much needed clothing to those that have lost everything in an amount equal to 10% of our gross sales in all Hobie Stores from the 23rd – 26th.

We are all part of the fabric of California’s unique tapestry. Help us share the love with our Golden State Family.

Hobie Heart :: Patagonia + Hobie :: Ocean Institute Receives Patagonia Environmental Grant

The Ocean Institute in Dana Point Harbor, where experience is the teacher.

From The Ocean Institute Newsletter ::

As well-known leaders in the outdoor industry for environmental advocacy and community enrichment, Patagonia’s waves of positive impact recently reached our Adopt-a-Class program with a $5,000 grant. The Patagonia ‘Environmental Grants Program’ funds organizations that identify and work on the root causes of environmental problems and approach those issues with a commitment to long-term change. This description parallels our goal for the Adopt-A-Class program, which enables underserved students from Title I schools across California to visit the Ocean Institute for hands-on education using ‘nature as the teacher’. The program is truly life-changing for these students, as many have never seen the ocean or been on a boat before. The experience not only provides essential learning opportunities that these children often don’t have access to, but also encourages a love for marine science that motivates them to become life-long learners and passionate advocates for the protection of our planet.

 

This year, as many of us reflect on the gifts we are thankful for—Ocean Institute recognizes our many donors and community partners who make our valuable educational programs possible. Patagonia’s support will provide over 250 underserved students with the gift of outdoor education and inspire future change-makers and defenders of our oceans. A special thanks to our wonderful friends at Hobie and other local environmentalists who were advocates for Ocean Institute during the application process. We are so grateful for this opportunity to expand our programs, and look forward to giving back through marine science, maritime history and environmental educational programs in the coming year.

We all have at least one can of food in our kitchen, right? We all are always looking for unique ways to reach out to our neighbors who hit a patch of bad luck, right??  We all love live music and art, right??? Then major score, because our friends at Eidon have combined a few of our favorite things into their “Eidon Musarity Tour’ hitting our Laguna Beach Hobie Shop on Friday, June 26th!

The sole focus of the tour is to not only present a night of great music from the incredible Ray Barbee and art from 6+ major artists, but they felt called to make the night a way for us to connect with our local friends who find themselves lacking in food resources. This is a first of it’s kind event and we are proud to be one of a small handful of shops lucky enough to take part!

Admission for the night is a minimum of one can of food per person.. but, we want to encourage you to go above and beyond!! Fill up a bag or two of your favorite canned items (especially Spam! You can’t bring enough Spam!!) and stoke out our local families who call The Boys & Girls Club of Laguna Beach home. The food will go a long way toward filling up tummies and hearts. So give as much as you can and spread the word to your crew!! We can’t wait to see you all!!

Here is a little Ray Barbee to get you in the mood!! For more information see the details below, or call the shop at 949-497-3304.
