Last Year’s Soirée

The 2018 Seaside Soirée brought together almost 250 individuals to celebrate 23 years of protecting inland and coastal waterways throughout San Diego County. Together, we raised more than $62,500 to advance the protection of clean water in our region, thanks to generous donors like yourself. These investments will directly support our important education, outreach, science, and advocacy programs. You can relive the event by checking out our Facebook photo album to see pictures from the celebration.
