Ventura County, CaliforniaUpdates from Ventura County Chapter—Protecting our local ocean and beaches from source to surf
Thank you to all of you who came out to the 4th Annual Pints Against Plastics! I had a fantastic time, and I hope you did too!
The “W” Gallery was packed with wonderful locals and Surfrider activists who had come from as far as Kauai. The bands–Shaky Feelin’, Fish Fry, and Earthwake–did a great job of keeping folks happy and dancing. Raffle prizes spanned an amazing variety of items; congratulations to everyone who won something!
We’d like to take this time to acknowledge some of our great partners and sponsors: Save the Mermaids, The Refill Shoppe, Surf Brewery, Primo, Sessions Brewery, Anacapa Brewing Company, Red Brick Pizza, Barefoot Wine, Klean Kanteen, Brook Hopper, Ventura’s Water Store, and Dr. David Satnick. And, finally, let’s raise a glass to all of the great volunteers who helped make this party happen.
See you next year for the 5th Annual Pints Against Plastics!
