Juice Magazine is hosting a once-in-a-lifetime group art show/fundraiser on October 20, 2011 at the Juice Magazine headquarters on the Venice Beach Boardwalk and we would like to extend this invitation to you and your guests to attend.
The Juice Magazine Surf Skate Culture Collection 3 is a Benefit for Babette & Jeff Ho. Babette has been diagnosed with late stage cancer, and all proceeds from the event will go to help Babette and Jeff Ho to defray medical expenses. Jeff Ho and Babette have been pillars of the surf/skate community for over three decades. This show is more than a benefit. It is a chance for all of us to show how the surf/skate community can rally and support two of our most distinguished participants. Join us in this very special evening and let’s show how we can make a real difference in Jeff and Babette’s lives.
Featured artists that have contributed artwork to the group show include Block, C.R. Stecyk III, Cris Dawson, Chuck Katz, David Hackett, Doug Smith, Eric Dressen, Eric “Tuma” Britton, Jason Adams, Jason Jessee, Jay Adams, Jesse Martinez, Kelly D. Williams, Libby Knudsen, Pat Ngoho, Bart Saric, Panhandle Slim, George Peterson, Errandboy, Brett Hammond, Mitch Reiter, Ona Gauthier, Steve Olson, Susanne Melanie Berry, Tim Kerr, Wes Humpston & many more. Jeff Ament has also donated his Fender Squire bass guitar autographed by all the guys in Pearl Jam to help Babette and Jeff Ho, as well as a hand-painted Zephyr tribute skateboard to benefit Babette and Jeff Ho.
This unique evening will also include a very special musical performance by Tony Alva (Babette’s half-brother) and his band G.F.P. Skateboarding legend Ray Flores will be spinning old school classics all night.
