Surfers for Autism is a group that holds annual events to spread awareness of autism and the “impact of surfing’s healing magic on children diagnosed on the autism spectrum,” according to the group’s website.

The event will see participants and surfers head out to enjoy music, raffles, lunch and vendors set up along the beach, the group’s website said.

Beach erosion has been an ongoing issue in Flagler Beach, as city leaders look into possible solutions to the problem.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 13 and is set to run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
