On Sunday, May 2, 2010 from noon to 4 p.m. the Laguna Board of Realtors is sponsoring an old-fashioned 4th of July picnic at Alta Laguna Park in the Top of the World community to raise funds to make certain that the City will have its iconic Fourth of July fireworks show on Main Beach. This event will provide a family friendly opportunity to celebrate that Laguna Beach spirit that makes our community so unique and special. Admission to the event includes lunch, lots of fun games for the entire family to enjoy, fabulous live rock and roll music provided by the ever popular Blues Offenders, and a silent and live auction.
The live auction should be especially exciting as the top auction item is a one-week stay at the world famous, ocean front Marriott Beach Club on Kaanapali Beach in Maui. This 2-bedroom, 3-bath unit sleeps eight and has been reserved for Spring Break 2011. Additionally, Hobie Sports has donated a stand-up paddle board. The silent auction includes an amazing array of gifts, services, and merchandise and restaurant certificates donated by individuals, and the shops and businesses of Laguna Beach.
Tommy Bahama has made a challenge grant of $10,000 toward the fundraising effort. This gives our sponsors the opportunity to “double” the value of their donation as Tommy Bahama will match any donation up to a total of $10,000. For contributions and event sponsorship please contact Michael Gosselin, event chairman, at 949.874.9293. All contributions are fully tax deductable.
Tickets for the event are $25 for adults and $15 for kids and can be obtained at the Laguna Board of Realtors at 939 Glenneyre Street or may also be purchased on the day of the event. If you would like to purchase one or more tickets but do not plan on attending the event, your tickets will be donated to the Boys and Girls Club who will pass them on to families that might not have the money to attend the picnic. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the Save the Fireworks Fund. For any additional information please contact Michael Gosselin at 949.874.9293. Please help us reach our goal of save the Fourth of July fireworks for the entire community to enjoy.
