Furniture 4 Less contacted the Ocean Beach Mainstreet Association OBMA a local
merchant’s association about wanting to do something for the youth in the area in

Two Sunset Cliffs Surfing Association Events in August!

The SCSA 2007 Tony Mezzadri Contest & Spaghetti Dinner is just around the corner! This annual event, in its thirteenth year, takes place Saturday, Aug. 18, and Sun. Aug. 19, at the Ocean Beach Pier. Several years ago, Tony suffered an injury that left him paralyzed, with no movement in his legs and limited movement in his arms and legs. Since the contest began in 1994, all proceeds from entry fees, t-shirt sales, raffles, spaghetti dinner, and donations have gone to benefit spinal cord research.

Get ready for Gromfest 2007! It takes place Aug. 25, 2007. Gromfest is a surf contest for kids, as well as a barbecue for everyone. This event is always a success and it gets better every year. Everyone is welcome to check out the action and if you’d like to volunteer to help out, contact one of the committee members. Use this link for more information.

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park Thank You

Sunset Cliffs Natural Park ? On Sunday March 18, 2007, the Sunset Cliffs Surfing Association (SCSA) and I love a clean San Diego hosted a cleanup of Sunset Cliffs Natural Park. SCSA and I love a Clean San Diego members armed themselves with gloves, collection bags, and wheel barrows to pick up trash and litter left behind in the Natural Park. In the past, the cleanups have netted trash and debris ranging from cigarette butts, cans, bottles, and broken glass to abandoned furniture. The Sunset Cliffs Natural Park cleanup is held three times a year to keep the open areas of the park free of litter and prevent broken glass and trash from washing down the canyons to the beach and contaminating the ocean environment. The cleanup is a chance for both organizations to gladly give back to the community of Point Loma and Ocean Beach.
