Philanthropy can be defined as a desire to promote the welfare of others for a specific cause, and no cause has quite touched our hearts here at Kona Surf Company quite like the charity of local baseball legend Matt Szczur. On Friday, January 27th, 2017, ‘Be the Match’ Foundation partnered with ‘The Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation’ will host the 2nd Annual Szcz the Day Event to raise money for the fight against blood cancer. Over 5 years ago, Matt unselfishly donated his bone marrow to someone on the other side of the world of less fortune than he. In response to Matt’s selfless efforts and out of good faith to the cause, Kona Surf Company is proud to announce the donation of a brand new Kona Standup Paddleboard to be auctioned off for charity at Matt’s 2nd Annual Szcz the Day Event. Proceeds from the event and silent auction will benefit the Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation and a local community member suffering from Cancer.
In further support of the cause, Matt Szcuzur and Kona Surf Company have partnered up to design a t-shirt that will be sold at the Szcz the Day event on the 27th, where all proceeds will go to the Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation.
“Cancer hits home for just about everybody today, especially living in such a small community like Wildwood,” said owner and operator of Kona Surf Company, Mike Sciarra. “Kona Surf Company and I are willing to do anything that we can in our fight against Cancer and in support of the Andy Talley Bone Marrow Foundation.”
