Backyard X-Scapes recently partnered with the Granite Hills High School Surf Team to furnish their annual banquet and fundraiser. The surf teamâ€™s year end event was island-themed, appropriate to demonstrateÂ theirÂ love and respect forÂ the ocean and the culture thatÂ surrounds it. The team borrowed various tiki masks, tropical signs and other pieces of tropical dÃ©cor from Backyard X-Scapes to add a little extra spark to the decorations.
The event was held in the DreamCatcher at Viejas on Wednesday March 30 and drew an event-high 125 guests. The banquet is the teamâ€™s main fundraiser for the year and they were able to raise thousands of dollars through a well-stocked silent auction. Prizes included various types of surf equipment such as wetsuits, leashes, boards and beach chairs as well as larger prizes like a 3 day stay at the Mission Beach House on the Boardwalk and 2 beach cruisers. The proceeds from the banquet will be the operating money for the Granite Hill High School Surf Teamâ€™s 2011-2012 school year as they do not receive any school funding for the program.
Backyard X-Scapes was happy to help the Granite Hills High School Surf Team in whatever way they needed. It is unfortunate that so many school-associated, extra-curricular activities in California and nationwide require donations from outside and private sources for almost 100% of their funding. We are glad to have been a part of making the students banquet a memorable one and hope that our tropical dÃ©cor and tiki decorations only added to the good time had by all.
The Granite Hills High School Surf Team has three more surf contests and a state championship coming up before the end of the school year. To see how they do, visit their facebook page and be sure to check out the Backyard X-Scapes banner on their website!
