Target Mattel Simmzy's Adventure Voyaging Coastal Cleanup Day REI

Heal the Bay headed to the South Bay last weekend to soak up some love in Manhattan Beach. First we cleaned the beach with 75 volunteers (including friends from Target and Mattel), netting 87 pounds of trash and enough cigarette butts to measure five feet.

Thank you to Simmzy’s Manhattan Beach for hosting the cleanup and the post-cleanup party featuring Golden Road Brewing’s Heal the Bay IPA! Simmzy’s owner Mike Simms participated in the cleanup, as did Heal the Board member Ian Eddleston, the family of board member Jorge Delgado and HtB supporter Woody Henderson, owner of Adventure Voyaging and 2012 Coastal Cleanup Day captain.

Afterwards, Simmzy’s was pouring Golden Road’s Heal the Bay IPA, donating $20 for each keg to Heal the Bay. Thank you again to Golden Road for brewing such a delicious benefit to our work.

Speaking of refreshments, Nothing Bundt Cake-Santa Monica just joined our list of Aquarium party partners.Thank you for joining the party and for your ongoing support!

We also send big props to outdoor gear purveyor REI for their longtime involvement in what we do to protect our waterways.
