Sisters of the Sea donates all of the proceeds of their event to ‘Bosom Buddies’ at the Women’s Center of Jacksonville. This group provides education to women at high risk for breast cancer and support for women and families affected by breast cancer. SOS has donated over $75,000 to ‘Bosom Buddies’ in the past 17 years, including a donation of $10,000 in 2015. “Most of the SOS members live in the Greater Jacksonville Area and we are very fortunate to have seen this sport grow and be recognized. Along with that, SOS is still able to give back to the community, develop lasting relationships and help our Mother Earth. We are hoping to pass down the surf classic event tradition to younger members very soon” Valerie Zevens, President of SOS. The mission of Sisters of the Sea is striving towards friendship, wave knowledge and beach improvement.
