When: Sat., May 30, 12-5 p.m. 2015
Kannon Price was taking a class at CofC as part of his entrepreneurial major when he decided to create an organization that gives back. And Ripple Effect was born. After watching a documentary on Clay Marza, a professional surfer with Aspberger’s Syndrome, Price (a surfer himself) decided to create a group that benefitted autistic kids, who are known to benefit from the soothing effects of water and the motor skills of surfing. This Saturday’s surf camp is the main event, and all kids are welcome to come out and learn how to hang ten. On Tuesday, Revelry Brewing donated 50 cents from each pint sold to the cause, while AlphaMind Coffee will be donating 25 percent of their sales to Ripple Effect from May 18-May 30. Price says that they’ve already doubled their proceeds from last year, and they’re hoping to raise $5,000 this year, with all proceeds going to the Charleston Autism Academy.
