Everyone was more than happy to empty their pockets in support of these two great establishments. All proceeds of the event went to the San Pedro Animal Foundation, which offers free veterinary care for pets whose owners cannot provide the advance or emergency care they need, and the San Pedro Sailing Club, who is currently raising funds for Kevin Velasquez to participate in the 2015 North American Optimist Dinghy Championship Regatta.Pedro Birthday Bash Beach Fundraiser-2
