Billabong’s “Design For Humanity”

28 05 2008

Do you like charity, fashion, music, beaches, oceans, or surfing? Surely at least one of these peaks your interest, and if so, we will be seeing you next Thursday at the Avalon Club in Hollywood. Design for Humanity, Billabong’s 2nd annual charity event, offers an opportunity for the posh and the poor alike to come together for a little fun in the name of doing good. This year’s event benefits the Surfrider Foundation, “a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s oceans, waves and beaches.”

Ok ok, this sounds like a puff-piece for USA Today or some other mediocre “news source.” The point is this thing is going to be a PARTY, one worth attending. The event opens in the Spider Club with an art exhibit and auction showcasing world renowned surf photographers. Then guests will be treated to a full runway fashion show featuring Billabong designs as well as collaborative works from a handful fashion celebrities. All items will be available for auction via E-Bay following the event.

After all of the niceties have been exchanged, the party will really begin as recent chart toppers MGMT take the stage sure to please all in attendance. But, if Indie Poprock isn’t your thing, perhaps the musical stylings of up-and-coming DJ Steve Aoki will float your boat as he spins late into the late night.

VIP Tickets, for those who can ($150), include special entrance and seating areas, as well as an open bar including a Ketel One ice luge (disgusting). For those of us who actually debate whether to put gas in the car or food in the stomach, we can wait in line and have a great time for a mere $30 (booze not included). Tickets for sale at

So if you can’t find a reason to go to this “incredible melding of music, art, fashion and social responsibility, you probably don’t live in the area (or you’re boring).

I’m sure we will see you there… “Let’s make some music make some money find some models for wives.”
