October 02 2019 0

At Bomber Eyewear, we believe in giving back to our community. There's no better way to connect with our customers, supporters, and friends! 

In the last few months, we've been able to help out on some truly incredible campaigns. To everyone who's helped us reach our charitable goals this year, we offer a huge THANK YOU! We couldn't do it without you! 

Let's dive in. 

June 3-9, 2019: Operation Surf

This June, Tommy Bonacci (Bomber Eyewear's founder) and our team joined Amazing Surf Adventures in Huntington Beach, California for the third annual Operation Surf. This incredible event connected surfing experts with wounded veterans and active-duty military members for a one-of-a-kind event full of waves, laughs, good food, and better camaraderie. 

Bomber stepped in as the official sunglasses sponsor for the event, sharing our shades and our love for the waves with this year's participants.

"When asked if Bomber would sponsor this event, it was a no-brainer," said Tommy. "We get to sponsor heroes!"

🇺🇸 The annual Operation Surf that happened last week in Huntington Beach is held in support of the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom. 🌊 It's mission is to help those in need to overcome life's challenges through the restorative power of the ocean and surfing! 🙏🏽 We got to visit them and give out some shades to these heroes whom we owe so much. We can never thank you enough for everything you do for our country. Huge thanks to: @operationsurf @vancuraza @dannynichols13 @fotomerlin Doug Davis, Roger Smith, Mackenzie Rana, and everyone participating for being such an inspiration 🙏🏽 . . #bombereyewear #operationsurf #surfcityusa

August 6-7, 2019: Surfercross 2019

In the spirit of competition, and in honor of surfing legend Sunny Garcia,Tommy teamed up with motocross racer Weston Pieck for the 2019 Surfercross event. Mixing dirt bikes and surfing, sandy beaches and muddy tracks, Surfercross unites professionals and amateurs alike in their love for adrenaline. 

 

September 11, 2019: OCTOA 47th Annual Motorcycle Rodeo & Skills Competition

Tommy headed back to Huntington Beach in September for the 47th annual OCTOA Motorcycle Rodeo & Skills Competition. More than 350 police officers spanning six California counties compete in this event. The competition is a massive fundraiser for officers who have been injured in the line of duty, as well as the families of officers who have lost their lives protecting ours. 

"Honoring these heroes that risk their lives everyday to protect our community, as well as those that have been injured and died in the line of duty - can't think of a better way to spend 9/11," said Tommy. "It should be a National Holiday in my opinion."

 

 

September 13, 2019: Bomber Eyewear's first Stand Up To Cancer Donation Drive

We're particularly excited about this final event, because you helped make it happen! This year, we decided to participate in the annual Stand Up To Cancer fundraising drive, held each year on "Stand Up To Cancer Day" (September 13). We decided to make a donation match for all of our sales the entire day on September 13. For every dollar you bought, we donated a dollar to SU2C

 

 

Our goal was to hit $2,500, but with your help, we donated a whopping $2786.65 to SU2C!

To everyone who bought sunnies on 9/13, shared our donation drive, or has otherwise supported us over the years, we say THANK YOU! 

Our community makes our dream possible, and we couldn't appreciate you more!
