A Note From the President {June 21, 2016}


It’s officially summer! But then you already knew that after surviving that record-breakingly hot weekend in LA. We spent our weekend at Huck Finn Day assisting hundreds of Santa Monica children in getting every variety of butterfly, dinosaur, and cheetah painted on their faces, fulfilling childhood dreams with our whipped cream pie-eating contest, as well as providing a ton of other activities including (but not limited to) “fishing”, sack races, coloring, and more. To see all of the adorable photos head here and prepare to do a lot of “awww”-ing.

The rest of June includes opportunities to get involved locally (tonight), go shopping for a cause (tomorrow), and wrap up the month with cheap-ish drinks and good conversation (next Tuesday).

Stay cool, Santa Monica.
