Since its inception in 2005, the Bro-Am has raised more than $400,000 for San Diego-based children’s charities. The Switchfoot Bro-Am was created to give back to the San Diego community while benefiting a local children’s charity, StandUp Kids, through funds being raised throughout the event like the Auction Night Soiree, sponsorships, beach vendors and an after-party. The StandUp Kids are true survivors, unsung heroes who have endured so much. The Bro-Am gives the San Diego community a chance to celebrate their journey: a day at the beach with friends, surfing, and a little rock and roll.
