A casino night fundraiser has been organized by the artist of a Kelly Slater bronze sculpture, Natasha Drazich, and her brother Sam in the hopes of raising the required funds for the completion of the work. Once completed, the sculpture is to be placed at 4th St. North and A1A in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
On August 29th, 2009, The Cocoa Beach Country Club will host the fundraiser from 6 to 11 p.m. A variety of casino games will be played, and there will also be a raffle, a silent auction, a buffet-style meal, and other entertainment.
With a successful fundraising effort, the sculpture could be completed as early as December of 2009.
The cost of the event is $50 and with the entry fee comes $500 in “funny money”. For more information go to the Kelly Slater Project Website.
