The Bay Foundation’s 3rd Annual Coastal Connections Event Celebrates Beaches & Bay at Pacific Park

On Thursday, September 28, from 5:30pm – 8:30pm,The Bay Foundation (TBF) will host its 3rd Annual Coastal Connections fundraiser at a customized venue in Pacific Park on the Santa Monica Pier. The family friendly event will celebrate everyone’s connections with the coast, featuring a 360-degree virtual reality experience of the Santa Monica Beach Restoration Project and exploration with TBF’s new unmanned submarine R2Deep2 (on hand). The event will include a delicious buffet and bar, sketch artists, passes for all the rides and games, and more! Tickets are on sale now, please visit www.santamonicabay.org or clickHERE.

TBF will be recognizing these special honorees:

  • The must-see film “A Plastic Ocean”, which vividly depicts the global plastic pollution crisis.
  • Loyola Marymount University (LMU), TBF’s research partner in the Center for Santa Monica Bay Studies since 2008, which conducts studies to understand pollution and environmental issues through student and faculty engagement.
  • Pasadena and Santa Monica Patagonia Stores, which have been so supportive via grants and dedicating employees to TBF’s restoration efforts.
“Since 1909 the Santa Monica Pier has supported millions of us. It allows us to walk above the waves, enjoying the sunshine, ocean air, and the laughter of friends and family.  Similarly, The Bay Foundation supports millions of us as we work to restore life and resilience to our coast, protect public health and explore,” states TBF Executive Director Tom Ford. “Our honorees have been selected based on their impressive and ongoing dedication to coastal environmental issues through the arts, academic research, and positive commerce. We think you’ll be inspired and we welcome your support. Please bring your family and friends to the pier on the 28th to find out more, experience us, and have a great time making new connections to the people and coast that make LA our home.”
