A local group of PCI (Project Concern International) supporters will host the premier of surf movie director Taylor Steele’s “Here and Now” on Aug. 4 at Bird’s Surf Shed in San Diego. The fundraising event will generate funds and awareness for PCI’s health and humanitarian efforts in San Diego and worldwide. All funds generated will go to PCI’s Healthy Start Program, which promotes better health for at-risk infants and newborns in the Southern California region. Junior world surf champion Leila Hurst will open the event, and film producer Andy Slipka will host Q&A after the movie.
