    If you're looking for a great non-profit organization to volunteer time or donate to, look no further than Chris Antao's Gnome Surf project.

    Chris joins the episode today to tell us how he's taking an idea often talked about as "just surfing" and re-framing the conversation as innovative healthcare.

    We cover how he got the idea started, what areas of marketing he and his team are winning at, and what the particular challenges he faces raising money on the South Coast.

    Beth Perdue & SouthCoast Emerging Leaders Award

    Beth Perdue & SouthCoast Emerging Leaders Award

    Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of joining the Southcoast Emerging Leaders Committee to offer a small (tiny!) part in pushing this program forward.

    Over the years, I had heard about the initiative but hadn't fully felt the gravity of it all -- until now.

    What does this program do?

    What do they stand for?

    Could I actually make an impact?

    Friend of the show Shelley Cardoos connected me with today's guest, Beth Perdue, and after a 30-minute coffee meeting at the Pink Bean in Fall River, I was convinced.

    If you're a business on the south coast, you don't want to miss your opportunity to get involved and nominate an emerging leader you know.

    Grab your tickets, $30 for the October 3rd reception at UMass Dartmouth Woodland Commons 5:30-7:30PM
