Project Surf Camp, a local nonprofit out of Morro Bay, received a grant for $50,000 after being chosen as a runner-up in the Today Show's "What Do You Care About TODAY" contest.
The organization teaches local children with special needs how to surf. Project Surf Camp was one of four charities in the running for a $100,000 grant from the Pepsi Refresh Project. Around 700 entries were submitted, and viewers across the country were asked to vote for their top charity.
The Bay Area Food Bank in Louisiana won the top prize, and will help provide food to people affected by the Gulf oil spill.
