As a kickoff to the ninth annual Switchfoot Bro-Am, the Bro-Am Auction Night Soiree was held July 12  at the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort & Spa. The event featured Grammy Award-winning rock act Switchfoot.

The event also included a “taste of San Diego” format, savoring signature dishes from leading local restaurants, such as Pacifica Del Mar, Harney Sushi, Jake’s Del Mar, Pacific Coast Grill, Solace & The Moonlight Lounge, Twenty 20, Daphne’s California Greek, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Solana Beach Crush, and many more.

Highlights also included silent and live auctions featuring Switchfoot’s own Drew Shirley as auctioneer and emcee, opportunity drawings, and more.

The Switchfoot Bro-Am, held July 13, was created by the band in 2005 to give back to the San Diego community while benefiting local children’s charities through funds raised at the pre-event auction night soiree, as well as from vendors on the beach and corporate surf team entries, sponsorships, and an after-party at the Belly Up Tavern.

Inspired by the success of the Bro-Am, Switchfoot recently created the Switchfoot Bro-Am Foundation to continue their mission of supporting local at-risk, homeless, and street kids throughout the year.
