for our annual Fiesta Dinner to be held on Wednesday, June 24, at 6:00 PM at Doheny State Beach (includes parking). The Doheny State Beach Interpretive Association will again open the Visitor Center 5:30 – 6:30 PM to view the aquarium and exhibits. Jack Saunderson, of Lucy’s El Patio Café, will once again serve up his delicious Mexican fare. Refreshments and parking are all included. Last year’s turnout was tremendous!  Be sure not to miss out on this festive event, which supports the $1,000 Doris I. Walker Scholarship and the $1,000 Lucy Chavarrias-Saunderson Scholarship and is annually given to two deserving high school seniors headed for college. Members and businesses are invited to contribute prizes for the opportunity raffle.  Items such as gift baskets, show/sports tickets and gift or restaurant cards are appreciated.  Please contact us at 949-248-8121 with any questions.
