Youth-driven, grassroots campaign Hands4Others (H4O) will make its big screen debut in the new documentary, Zero to 100: The Lakey Peterson Story, when it premieres on February 10, 2013 at the historic Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara.
The film, which chronicles pro-surfer Lakey Peterson's journey and rise to fame on the Women World Championship Tour, will also highlight the young philanthropist's efforts with H4O, a non-profit dedicated to providing safe and sustainable access to drinking water around the world.
"H4O has always been close to my heart," said the ASP North American surf champion, Lakey Peterson." This movie will definitely show my fans another side of me. I hope they will get to experience what an important cause this is to me and why I am so honored to be a part of it."
Peterson first teamed up with the non-profit after a trip to Rote, Indonesia where she witnessed first-hand the local villager's desperate need of safe, clean water. Together with H4O and Water Missions International, Peterson has been helping to raise funds and awareness for this project.
"It's so awesome to have someone as passionate as Lakey behind this cause," said H4O Founder Spencer Dusebout." Her support and efforts have been tremendous in helping this organization to grow."
The film's premiere, which is set to take place at the Lobero Theatre, in her hometown of Santa Barbara, will feature live performances, sponsor giveaways, and raffles with proceeds going towards Peterson¹s favorite non-profits.
General Admission ($20) and VIP tickets ($75), which include a pre-party at the Wine Cask, an iconic restaurant located in Downtown Santa Barbara, are available for purchase at lobero.com/events/100 with a portion of all sales benefiting charity.
About Hands4Others (H40)
Hands4others (H4O) is a grass roots organization founded in fall on 2008 in Santa Barbara by several teenagers from the community. Having traveled outside the United States, they could not shake the images of children and families forced to spend most of their time gathering insufficient amounts of dirty water - water most of us would not bathe in, let alone drink. Their response to this crisis was to form Hands4others (H4O), a movement of young people (who together with their families) have been called to change the world one person, one family, one village at a time by providing sustainable access to safe, drinkable water for those in need. To date, children and families in ten countries around the world are currently provided with safe water because of the efforts of H4O and the generous contributions from supporters.
