The 2012 Chip Miller Surf & Turf presented by Fox, Copiers Plus, Division 8 Concepts & Ocean Minded
The Chip Miller Charitable Foundation is proud to announce it is 9th Annual Surf Fest, taking place on July 12th, 2012 at the 7th Street Surfing Beach, in Ocean City, NJ. In addition to the surf event, there will also be our first-ever Chip Miller Cup Miniature Golf Tournament, which will be hosted at Tee Time Mini Golf on the Boardwalk at the contest site on the same day.
In addition to hosting the community-wide surf contest and golf outing, this year’s event will continue to raise money and awareness for the rare but deadly disease Amyloidosis, which took the life of the event’s namesake, Chip Miller, in 2004.
Chip's son, Lance Miller said the following: "The Chip Miller Surf Fest started off small, like any new event. Through the years we’ve been very fortunate to have such strong local support. Watching this event mature year over year has been a true triumph and provides my family and I with the utmost joy knowing my father is still making an impact even 9 years after his passing. I’m excited about the addition of Mini Golf because I’m not a golfer but enjoy playing Mini Golf and can’t wait to show my skills off! We’re eager to continue this growth pattern for years to come and of course help spread the word about this terrible disease that took my best friend and father’s life: amyloidosis."
‘The Chip’ as it’s known to the locals, has become infamous because of the outpouring of support from the community, the surf and auto industries, and countless others. These supporters contribute their services and products for autograph sessions, giveaways, event support, after-party raffle prizes, and silent auction items. The addition of this year’s golf tournament will make the overall event better than it’s ever been in the past.
All event proceeds are donated to the Chip Miller Charitable Foundation, whose mission is to empower people with the knowledge and understanding of Amyloidosis for earlier detection, ensuring a better quality of life for those afflicted with the disease and to help science find the cure.

ABOUT CHIP MILLER:
In December 2003, Chip Miller was diagnosed with a little-known disease called Amyloidosis. Sadly, due to complications from the disease, the
world lost an incredibly special human being on March 25, 2004. Had Chip and his doctors been aware of the symptoms of Amyloidosis when they first presented, this legend might still be with us today.
Amyloidosis occurs when abnormal protein, called amyloid, builds up in
one or more organs to cause a malfunction. As an abnormal protein,
amyloid originates in bone marrow. The heart, kidneys, nervous system and gastrointestinal tract are most often affected by the disease. Signs
and Symptoms depend on the organs affected. The wide range of symptoms makes it difficult to diagnose.
