The Chip Miller Charitable Foundation held its 9th Annual Surf Fest, on July 12th, 2012 at the 7th Street Surfing Beach, in Ocean City, NJ.
The event was held perfectly in sync with the weather and the waves for this year. It was a hot 85 degrees on the beach and there was a 2-3ft swell, giving the surfers something to work with during their heats.
In addition to hosting the community-wide surf contest and golf outing, this year’s event will continued to raise money and awareness for the rare but deadly disease Amyloidosis, which took the life of the event’s namesake, Chip Miller, in 2004.
‘The Chip’ as it’s known to the locals, has become infamous because of the outpouring of support from the community, the surf and auto industries, and countless others. These supporters contribute their services and products for autograph sessions, giveaways, event support, after-party raffle prizes, and silent auction items. The addition of this year’s golf tournament made the overall event better than it’s ever been in the past.
All event proceeds were donated to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation, whose mission is to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of Amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cure.
In addition to the surf event, there was also a first-ever Chip Miller Cup Miniature Golf Tournament and once again held an after party at Greate Bay Country Club in Somers Point, NJ.
