SoDel Cares, the philanthropic arm of the hospitality group SoDel Concepts, recently donated $4,000 to Surfers Healing, which holds volunteer-staffed surf camps for more than 4,500 children with autism.

Founded in 1969 in Southern California, the organization coordinates Surfers Healing Day in Ocean City, Maryland, each year. The 2018 event was Aug. 15.

Kris Medford, an avid surfer and director of operations for SoDel Concepts, participates in the event.

Kelly Loeser and Dale Loeser, owners of Quiet Storm in Rehoboth Beach, accepted the check on behalf of Surfers Healing. The company is involved with the charity.

SoDel Concepts helps children and adults with autism in other respects. In 2017, Autism Delaware selected SoDel Concepts as the recipient of the Noelle Perry Smith Employer of the Year Award.
