Lifeguard Summer Benefit – July 23rd at Whale Tail Brewery

Summer Benefit Dinner and Party will be July 23rd at Whale Tail Brewery in Uvita

Many community members remember the grand 4th of July parties hosted by Michael Witte and MC’d by Richard Abraham at the Roca Verde. The events raised thousands of dollars for the lifeguard program and now we have a new organizer and a new host.

Bud Thompson is leading the effort this year and Whale Tail Brewing and Hotel has donated their space for the party – LOCATION. From 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. there will be a private event with food and drink donated by the brewery and other restaurants in the area. Innaoceano will give a presentation and there will be live music by Drew Laplante and DJ Bosque. There will also be a silent auction with some amazing choices such as fishing trips, luxury hotel stays, and snorkeling Caño Island. Tickets for the private event will be $100 per person and we hope to sell at least 50 tickets. Here is the link to buy one – (it is a tax deductible donation if you file taxes the US)

Then from 7 to 10 p.m. the doors will open to the public and there will be a 5000 colones entry that includes one raffle ticket. Extra tickets can be purchased for 5000c each or five for 20000c. Both Drew and DJ Bosque will play a second set and there may be some surprise acts!

We already have some great prizes lined up, but are hoping from more support from local businesses so if you have a prize to offer that would be awesome. We will be sure to mention your business that evening and on this page. You can email us or send a message through Facebook and are accepting prizes until July 16th.

Already we have prizes from: Jackpot Sportsfishing, Innoceana, Costa Rica Dive and Surf, ColoTico, Brisa Elegante Cruises, Ojala Naturals, Dominical Waverider, Jazzys River House, Citrus, Costa Verde Surf, Hona Hotel, Nourish Spa, Nate Moore, Kura, Oxygen, Mavi Surf, Marlin Tresemer, and Mosaic. (as of July 16th)

So buy your ticket to the private event or show up to the post party at the Whale Tail Brewery in Uvita. It is going to be a great evening!
