Bali’s R.O.L.E. Foundation is hosting The Bali Waterman’s Night at Tapeo Gastrobar at Kuta Beachwalk from 6:00 pm until midnight on Saturday, August 31, 2013.
A special night of fundraising dedicated to those who love Bali and its surrounding oceans, the evening will be built around blues music or, as the organizers put it – “Blues for the Blue.”
Surfers, fishermen, divers, sea captains, beachcombers and seascape gazers are all urged to join a memorable night at Bali’s best Spanish-style venue. They're will be surfing and oceanic memorabilia on display, an art exhibition, raffles and a fashion show. An auction item on offer that evening will be a signed surfboard by the legendary Joel Parkinson.
The Bali Waterman's Night will also honor the people who are role models for our children by demonstrating their love for healthy oceans. Four Watermen have been selected for recognition by judges Steve Palmer, Paul Gringo Anderson, Tim Watt, Gede Nirmeda, Marcello and Mike O'Leary.
Among those to be honored is Pak Monoh who undertook an epic voyage in an outrigger “jukung” canoe from Nusa Lembongan to Darwin Australia in 1973
All funds raised On August 31st will go towards the “Island Sustainability Education Center” and its programs dedicated to stop waste getting into Bali’s rivers, waterways, beaches and reefs. The center provides job skills and environmental education to disadvantaged and “at risk groups” helping to create future leaders in the struggle to save the environment.
