Boy I love when local businesses contact us about events and stuff! (Hint Hint.)
Elizabeth Ryan, owner of Tales & Toys, has sent us this:
Come and join us Friday, July 11th for First Friday’s on Abbot Kinney Blvd. (really the 2nd since the 1st was the 4th)!
From 5:30pm – 6:30pm Tales & Toys will be hosting Jo from Heal the Bay . Jo will be here to talk specifically with the kids about why the ocean is important for marine life and people! She will also talk about the sources of ocean pollution and what we can all do to protect our oceans. She will be bringing along some activity guides, stickers, bookmarks and general information about Heal the Bay. We hope you all can come by.
10% of the proceeds from the night (5:30pm – 9pm) will be donated to Heal the Bay. Come on out and spend some time with your local retailers (the shops will be open late) and help the keep our beaches and ocean clean!
This sounds like an excellent event! Most of us could use a little more education about the effects of pollution on the ocean and its inhabitants. And who doesn’t love stickers? (I’m not being sarcastic!)
Even if you don’t have (or can’t find) a kid to bring to this event – show your support not only for local business but for great charities such as Heal the Bay.
