Thank You Thursday: July 2015

Cindy Crawford and Heal the Bay president Alix Hobbs at Duke's MalibuIt’s not every night we get to schmooze with a supermodel. And when the schmoozing takes place overlooking the ocean, well, what could be more perfect? Thanks to our friends at Dukes of Malibu for donating the room with a view. And special thanks to Cindy Crawford for joining us late last month for the evening of drinks and small bites.

Our Santa Monica Pier Aquarium’s Science Adventures Camp crew had a thrilling day walking the planks and riding the rides at Pacific Park during the camp’s Pirate Week. Pacific Park kindly gave us a special pirate rate. We arrrrgh grateful!

Everyone should be thankful that the Special Olympics World Games are underway right here in SoCal. Seeing the athletes around Los Angeles, cheering them on at athletic events or witnessing the Opening Ceremonies on July 25th are all inspirational moments. Heal the Bay thanks our board member Stephanie Medina for providing staff with the opportunity to attend the opening ceremonies at the LA Memorial Coliseum. Stephanie is Sr. Vice President, Community Relations, of the Special Olympics. Bravo, Stephanie!
