PEOPLE | CULTURE | HAPPENINGS trending 13 Boards Breathe Hope 65 Roses By EMMY ERRANTE Photography by ALLISON POTTER In the frenzy of a bidding war during the 2014 Pipeline to a Cure, Swansboro’s Emily Sylvester — mother of a 13-year-old daughter, Betsy, a surfer girl living with cystic fibrosis — sat at a table with her college friend, Jenny Keenan. Sylvester says she and Keenan have remained close over the years, even going on family surf trips to Costa Rica together. While they watched, Keenan’s father, John Hackenberg, flashed his bidder number, driving up the price of 65 Roses, the board specially shaped by Shawn O’Donnell for that year’s fundraising benefit gala for the regional chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Ian Balding uses a surform tool to clean up the rough cuts on a surfboard in his workshop July 3. The finished board will be the centerpiece of the Pipeline to a Cure Gala live auction August 8. www.wrightsvillebeachmagazine.com WBM
