OCEAN CITY, N.J. - Aug. 1, 2019 - PRLog -- Life is Good – that's what Chip Miller would always say.  For a pair of recent fund-raising events hosted by the late National Corvette Hall of Famer's namesake foundation, not only was it good, it was great!  On Friday, July 19, the Chip Miller Amyloidosis Foundation welcomed hundreds of surfers and dozens more families for its 16th Annual Surf Fest and 4th annual Slide for Amyloid & Taste of OC.

In the days leading up to Surf Fest, the ocean was calm by surfing standards, but with Chip Miller looking down on an event he'd surely be proud of, King Triton rose up, offering perfect surfing conditions with waves not seen in OCNJ all summer.

Registration got things going at 7:30 a.m.  with surfers of all ages and skill sets taking part in the fun.  Nearly a hundred surfers took part with the top 6 being recognized in 7 different categories.  Those categories included Girls 12 & Under, Girls 13 & Up, Boys 12 & Under, Jr. Men, Men, Longboard and Parent/Child.

As if cooling off IN the ocean wasn't enough, the CMAF had more water themed fun planned for the evening.  Just blocks from the surf beach sits the Ocean City Water Park and as the sun faded to the west, the 2019 turnout and subsequent festivities topped last year's event.  Earned money was well over $30,000 and surpassed last year's totals, while sixteen restaurants and eateries in OC donated some of the best food anyone could want as part of the evening.

My father, Chip Miller was looking down on us this beautiful beach day," noted CMAF president Lance Miller.  "We haven't had waves all summer and everyone couldn't believe their eyes once they peered towards the ocean and saw some incredible surf pouring in for the contestants to enjoy. We couldn't have asked for better surf and weather," continued Miller.

Miller also noted that the weather (and his wife) played a key role in the Taste of OC/Slide for Amyloid event too.

"The weather couldn't have been better for an evening at the OC Waterpark. My wife, Michele, really took the helm this year and worked diligently on getting local eateries behind the Taste of OC.  The food was out of this world! We couldn't have done it without the amazing OC community."

Prices and participation vary.  Complete details on the 2019 season can be found online at www.ChipMiller.org or via the CMAF Facebook page, www.facebook.com/AmyloidosisAwarenes.
