On Thursday night, September 9th, SurfAid International and The Blue Project hosted an awareness and fundraising event known as No Leash Required. Heather Gardner also attended the event, donating jewelry for the live auction.
The summer evening at Malibu Wines began with live music, complementary food and a wine bar for the guests. A silent and live auction gave attendees more opportunities to give, and hearts were moved to action.
Heather Gardner jewelry teamed up with BubuLuLu bikinis by Malibu local Shannon Lewis and SurfMonk to create a must have live auction package. Shannon modeled the ensemble. The evening's co-MC, Nia Peeples, won the highest bid, and all money was donated to SurfAid International.

The jewelry in the auction consisted of Heather Gardner's Turquoise Slice Necklace layered with our most popular 5 Layer Ethiopian and turquoise crystal necklace. The look was completed with our Double Chain Turquoise earrings.
