Hawaiian Springs Natural Artesian Water sponsors Pipeline to a Cure gala for third consecutive year

For the third consecutive year, Hawaiian Springs Natural Artesian Water sponsored the Fourth Annual Pipeline to a Cure gala event held on Aug. 6 at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach in California. The event, a benefit for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, was established when a team of Australian researchers discovered that patients with the disease who surfed had healthier lungs than non-surfing patients. This discovery led to a new treatment that mimicked a “surf session” on a daily basis. Patients inhaled a hypertonic saline solution to obtain surfing’s healthful effects. Pipeline to a Cure raises money to support these and other efforts in discovering a cure for cystic fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis (CF), an inherited genetic disease, affects the lungs with heavy, clogging mucus and prevents the digestive system from breaking down and absorbing food properly. The disease has no cure and those diagnosed are often given a life expectancy that lasts into their late thirties at most.
More than 650 guests attended this inspirational event, which was held at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort and Spa. Surfing legends such as Dave Kalama, Tom Curren, and Bethany Hamilton attended, as well as musicians Mike Dirnt from Green Day and Social Distortion’s Mike Ness. Dave Kalama also served as honorary co-chair with renowned waterman Laird Hamilton.

The Kalama Brothers entertained the crowd as guests bid on artwork, trips, and other valuable items at the silent auction. The event raised over $300,000 for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

About Hawaiian Springs

Hawaiian Springs began bottling its young, natural, artesian water in February 1995. Drawn from a highly sustainable artesian aquifer at the base of Mauna Loa on the Big Island of Hawaii, Hawaiian Springs bottles its water directly from the source within 30 days of falling as Arctic rain. Hawaiian Springs is one of the finest natural waters available today, with a distinctive, slightly sweet taste and delivering a moment of what makes Hawaii special.
