La Jolla native Jon Sundt founded the Sundt Memorial Foundation after losing his two younger brothers to drugs. Through dedication and support from friends and community partners, the organization has grown into a nationally recognized nonprofit.
Jon produced a DVD series called Natural High using children's idols like Kelly Slater, Tony Hawk, Switchfoot, and POD to promote getting a Natural High without drugs. The Foundation produces and distributes this DVD FREE OF CHARGE to every middle school in the country (over 114,000 schools) with a potential reach of 31 million children.
There's fundraising gala honoring double-platinum, San Diego band, Switchfoot and a live and silent auction items like getaways to Puerta Vallarta, Cabo San Lucas, Park City Utah, and a custom surfboard shaping session with Rusty of Rusty Surfboards.
Proceeds go directly towards production and distribution of Natural High 4.
The event takes place Saturday, Oct. 18, from 6 to 10 p.m. at Birch Aquarium at Scripps.
Tickets are $150 and available online at
