So maybe we’re a little late popping the bubbly on January 17, versus on New Year’s Eve, but we have a lot to celebrate this week!
First, Moët & Chandon and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, along with supporters like you, helped Heal the Bay win $11,000 through Moët & Chandon's #Toast4aCause at the Golden Globes on Sunday. The champagne company pledged $10,000 to the charity with the most re-tweets by Monday at midnight. Julia – who serves on Heal the Bay’s Board– nominated us, earning us $1000. Then we asked you to help get the word out, and you did it! We won! Thank YOU and thank you Moët & Chandon.
We’ll be able to do a lot of good with that amount of money, which will help support our programs. Again, thank you (and happy birthday!) to Julia, who remains a frequent and constant champion of our cause.
Our Beach Report Card also received significant support this week from LAcarGUY. We thank them for their ongoing commitment to protecting our coastline.
Holiday thank you “leftovers” in 2013 include local businesses Bedhead Pajamas andEarth Scents, for helping us kick off the giving season.
And since we’re still in the NYE spirit, we also thank the Basement Tavern @ The Victorian in Santa Monica for donating the proceeds from their New Year’s bash to Heal the Bay and the California Heritage Museum.
