Cleanup - Spring Break Edition!

Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 04:00 PM · 8 rsvps

Miami Beach is known for its beautiful white sand and crystal blue water, but during Spring Break, our sand and water becomes speckled with red solo cups, tequila bottles, and all sorts of rubbish!

Join us for a sunset cleanup to network and engage in some healthy fun with WeWorkSurfrider Foundation, and VolunteerCleanup.Org so we can show our tourists how to really party and not become just a bunch of dirty beaches ;-)

Every attendee gets a FREE day at any WeWork location of their choice, a WeWork t-shirt, and a special surprise from Debris Free Oceans!

Feel free to come by at any time between 4 and 7pm, as we will have the Surfrider tent set up on the sand with someone to check you in and give you your swag and cleanup gear throughout the entire time period.

We'll meet at 4PM at Hobie Beach (aka Dog Beach - yes, feel free to bring your dogs!) on Virginia Key. After you go over the first bridge onto Virginia Key (William M. Powell Bridge), take the FIRST right hand turn (across from the Rusty Pelican) If you pass Whiskey Joe's, then you missed it!! We will set up at the end of the lot across from Whiskey Joes. 

Special vegan BBQ treats for the first 20 people who show up by Ayssa Marie, but feel free to bring your own veggie burgers to pop on the grill! (Vegan only please!)

If you've been craving one of our tumblers, we will have both small and large tumblers available for a $10 (small) or $15 (large) donation. 

We will bring water, cleanup gear, and of course beer, but you are responsible for sunscreen and a reusable cup. 

We ID!

Thank you to Wynwood Brewing Company!
