Inspired by Autism Society San Diego’s mission and programs, Josh and Kalani came back to dedicate a day to teaching classes at the organization’s surf camp. Held at San Diego’s La Jolla Shores, the annual surf camp provides five weeks of one-on-one surf and swim instruction to persons with autism ages five years and up. The Tommy Hilfiger Corporate Foundation’s support of Autism Society San Diego reflects the Foundation’s ongoing commitment to autism related programs across North America. Through corporate donations and funds raised through consumer events, the Foundation is underwriting Autism Society San Diego’s annual Surf Camp program to cover the costs for underprivileged families living in San Diego through 2016.
