Bolt Blowers, Torquay, Australia

For the last 7 years Bolt Blowers crew get together to organise a retro surf event to raise both public awareness and money for the fundraising group 'One in Five' who in turn donate the funds to the Mental Health Research Institute (MHRI) in Victoria. We've all been affected directly or indirectly by mental illness. 100% of the money raised through the Bolt Blowers event is donated to One in Five and this year over 10K was raised on the day. Being a surf event for youth related issues the Quiksilver Foundation has been a sponsor of the event from its inception. This year we opened the doors of Quiksilver Headquarters for the after party on Saturday night. Over 180 people attended and were absolutely blown away by both the set up and hospitality. The event was a huge success for a great cause.
