Riding the Wave: Fourth Wall Gives Back

Posted on Posted in Blog

Here at Fourth Wall Events, we’re all about giving back. Over the years, we’ve established numerous partnerships with both local causes and national charities to improve the lives of those in need in both fun and long-lasting ways. Our running relationship with Event Pros Take Action (EPTA) has allowed Fourth Wall to get some serious hands-on experience in Far Rockaway, New York – one of the hardest hit Townships in the wake of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. During the three-day effort, Fourth Wall assisted with the EPTA’s rebuilding mission for “event professionals to come together in an unprecedented way to provide relief to communities who are suffering from environmental disaster”. Always looking for more to do, Fourth Wall is pleased to announce our newest partnerships:

There’s always more to do…

Our partnership with Special Citizens Future Unlimited

To become even more involved with different causes, Fourth Wall Events is happy to show its support for Special Citizens Future Unlimited as a sponsor for The 9th Annual Kristen Bednar Memorial Surf Camp for Children with Autism. This inspiring program is a one-day free camp for children with Autism and their families where children get to hang ten one-on-one with a qualified instructor and reap the benefits of aquatic therapy. The camp will take place Saturday, August 15, 2015 at Cupsogue Beach in Westhampton, New York.

Founded in 2007 by Jessica Zufall, the first Surf Camp was attended by 22 lucky children, with the youngest camper at just three years old. Last year, the camp hosted 118 surfers, with that very same three-year-old returning for his ninth session at the age of 12. All children get to surf tandem with an instructor for as long as they want. Campers are also provided with a free lunch and t-shirt, while each family member who attends receives a special gift each year.

Our production team volunteering with The Sato Project

To help support their July 9, 2015 fundraiser called “No Ordinary Girls” being held at Gleason’s Gym on Front Street in Brooklyn. Twelve brave women will step through the ropes during an all-female boxing event to support this great canine cause. The Sato Project is run by Christina Beckles, a professional boxer, who rescues dogs from Puerto Rico beaches and gets them into forever homes. Our Technical Director, Peter Smith is a proud owner of a dog from Sato.
