The 23rd annual Luau & Legends of Surfing Invitational was held over the weekend to benefit the UC San Diego Moores Cancer Center.  Dozens of surfers participated in the tournament and more than 500 attendees enjoyed traditional Polynesian dancing and music, and a tropical buffet.  This year’s Rell Sunn Award was presented to Denny Sanford for his incredible support of UC San Diego that has made significant medical and scientific discoveries possible.  Since its inception, the event has raised over $7 million for cancer research and care.  

Sam Armstrong, John Otterson and Chancellor Khosla presented the Rell Sunn Award to Denny Sanford.
