People who love the water from around the Mid-Atlantic area will gather this weekend to raise money for those who were impacted by Hurricane Sandy in New Jersey. Surfers, standup paddlers, kayakers, sailors, and others have joined with skaters, artists, photographers and musicians to present “Potomac Groundswell: A Winter Rebellion.” Net proceeds go to Rebuild Recover, a 501(c)(3) non-profit run by Jersey shore locals. Key partners include Potomac Riverkeeper and the DC Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. Please join us to enjoy great music, art, drinks, and to participate in a silent auction featuring works from top-notch artists.
