  1. You have an excuse to drink Bali Hai’s famous mai tais. This year’s Seaside Soiree will take place at the Bali Hai on Shelter Island, so if you’ve been dying to try one of Bali Hai’s World Famous Mai Tais, now is your chance! Trust me, you won’t need the summer sun to get an afterglow from these punchy drinks.
  2. You can shake hands with Bobby. Someone must have mentioned the Koch brothers, because Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. will give a keynote address to guests at the event! I mean, who wouldn’t want to say they’ve rubbed elbows with a Kennedy?
  3. Although it’s not summer, you can still wear your Hawaiian shirt. Didn’t get a chance to wear your Hawaiian shirt this summer? Worry not, this event is at the Bali Hai, so tropical patterns are totally appropriate. Besides, we all know that environmentalists love nature-themed prints.
  4. Because 20 years of fishable, swimmable and drinkable waters is worth celebrating. It’s been twenty years since two gutsy water lovers took action to stop the toxic dumping that was slowly killing San Diego Bay. We are celebrating San Diego’s new water recycling program after a 15-year battle, twelve years of volunteer water quality data collection, free environmental STEM education lessons, and beach water quality testing that can deliver water quality results to your phone in hours rather than days…and many more accomplishments to come!
  5. Did we mention Bali Hai’s mai tais? Do I even have to explain?
  6. You can shamelessly stuff your face with delicious food. Good news: grazing is completely allowed at this event with our roaming buffet. You’ll get to gorge on some mouth-watering Polynesian food while socializing with water conservation hot shots.
  7. You might even win something. Wouldn’t it be great if you came home with something awesome? Bring your competitive spirit and winning strategy to try your luck for some great prizes at our opportunity drawing and auction.
  8. Water is kind of a big deal. In case you haven’t noticed, California is in a bit of a drought. This event raises money to support San Diego Coastkeeper’s work on water quality and water supply issues in San Diego County. Since we all need fishable, swimmable, and drinkable water, it’s a cause worth supporting.
  9. You can enjoy a gorgeous San Diego sunset by the water. At this evening event, you’ll have the chance to watch the sunset over San Diego Bay while mingling at the edge of the beautiful waters you’re helping protect.
  10. It’s going to be a blast. Bobby Kennedy, potent mai tais, yummy food, and a beautiful sunset. Need I say more?
