The Valpo Surf Project (VSP) is back in the Hamptons on Saturday, August 24 to present another fun evening in support of the youth mentorship organization.

"We're so grateful to be hosting our second annual Hamptons fundraiser at the Stephen Talkhouse," Wiley Todd, CEO & Founder, shared. "Last year was one of our best events to date, with a great showing of surfers, artists, and local community members."

"We're very excited to be in Amagansett for the second year in a row," Abby McLagan, Development Coordinator, added. "This year we have a lot of beautiful art and photography in our silent auction, with all proceeds benefiting our 164 students and counting."

From 5 to 7 p.m., attendees will enjoy the relaxed, casual atmosphere of Stephen Talkhouse in Amgansett, along with an amazing silent auction boasting a myriad of unique items from Edwina Lucas, Sean Spellman, ARC Fine Arts, Grain Surfboards, Hamptons Surf Company, Rodrigo Farias, Montauk Brewing Company, Quincy x MTK and many more.

The Valpo Surf Project Amagansett Benefit will support the Valpo Surf Project's work in the poorest neighborhoods of Valparaíso, Chile, which are plagued by crime, drug abuse, and persistent unemployment. VSP offers a support network through surfing, continual mentorship, academic tutoring, and environmental stewardship to engage, enlighten, and inspire students to better their own lives, as well as have a positive impact on their communities.

"Proceeds from the event had an incredible impact on our students and programming," Todd noted. "We're really counting on the Hamptons community to turn out again and support the important work we do."

Since its founding in 2010, the Valpo Surf Project has worked with more than 650 students through collaborations with community organizations, schools, and a juvenile detention and rehabilitation center spearheaded by Chile's department of youth services.

"On top of our event on Saturday, ARC Fine Arts LLC (145 Main Street, Amagansett) will be donating 25 percent of profits from Thom Gilbert's new book Waves: Pro Surfers and Their World to the VSP sold over the weekend," McLagan noted. "Don't miss out on all these awesome ways to support the Valpo Surf Project!"

Admission to the Valpo Surf Project Amagansett Benefit is free.

Stephen Talkhouse is located at 161 Main Street in Amagansett. For more information, visit www.valposurfproject.org.
