Even Keel Tattoo partners with Shark Allies for 3rd Annual Shark Weekend Fundraiser
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Shark Week is here and people in Pacific Beach are celebrating in a unique way. Dani Ruberti was live at Even Keel Tattoo parlor to check out the tattoos people are getting to support shark week and shark protection efforts.
Shark Allies, a Los Angeles-based 501 C 3 non-profit led by founder, Stefanie Brendl, and VP, Erika Wunch, is joining locally-famous tattoo parlor, Even Keel, to kick off the 3rd annual Shark Weekend fundraiser. Even Keel and Shark Allies conceived this outreach event to bring worldwide attention to the protection of sharks.
For the third consecutive year, Even Keel Tattoo, owned by Kyle Walker and Nate Banuelos, located at 4672 Cass Street, San Diego 92109, and 5 of their tattoo artists, will be donating their services and inking attendees with shark-themed tattoos throughout the course of the weekend. While event goers immortalize their new found appreciation for sharks, others can partake in raffles. Throughout the weekend, Shark Allies will be there to broaden awareness about shark conservation and the importance of a healthy shark population in our marine ecosystem.
Over the past three years, the Shark Weekend fundraiser has expanded its reach and has quickly become a staple summer event in San Diego. The three day fundraising event commences Friday July 20th, ending Sunday July 22nd. Discovery Channel’s fan-favorite Shark Week, which begins the same day, will be featuring Shark Allies during its program for millions of viewers to watch worldwide.
With the common goal of taking an active role in the protection and conservation of sharks, Shark Allies and Even Keel Tattoo, through their long-standing partnership for the Shark Weekend fundraiser, have become leaders in the fight to defend sharks.
