Heal the Bay Announces Green Honorees for Santa Monica Gala

By Staff Writer

Environmental group Heal the Bay has announced its honorees for the Bring Back the Beach Annual Awards Gala on the evening of Thursday, May 23 at the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica, California. Reflecting the eclectic nature of Southern California’s devoted ocean lovers, the nonprofit will salute the eco-accomplishments of Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl and “The World Famous KROQ”.

Now in its second decade, Heal the Bay’s Gala has grown into L.A.’s ultimate beach party. The Gala will welcome 1,000 guests to celebrate on the sand, and under the stars, in support of thriving oceans and healthy watersheds. The event consistently sells out and brings together a lively group of artists, influencers, entertainment figures, local government officials and business leaders.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Sheila Kuehl has a long history of collaboration with Heal the Bay, starting with her days as a California State Senator.

“Under her fearless leadership in public office, she has made the L.A. region more environmentally healthy and sustainable. She protected the long-term health of the local coastline by co-authoring legislation that created the Santa Monica Bay Restoration Commission in 2002,” Heal the Bay said in a press release.

Last year, Kuehl championed Measure W, a ballot measure that will generate $330 million annually to fund projects that capture stormwater, treat runoff and replenish our local water supply. Measure W passed with a 69% majority.

“This crucial progress toward sustainable water would not have been possible without the leadership and vision of Supervisor Kuehl,” Heal the Bay said.

KROQ has given a steady stream of support to Heal the Bay over nearly three decades.

“As one of the region’s leading alternative rock music purveyor, KROQ has connected millions of music listeners and concert-goers to the shoreline, to their watershed and to each other. Driven by an unrivaled dedication to the Los Angeles community and culture, KROQ has contributed $1,000,000 to Heal the Bay’s local science-based programs since 1992,” Heal the Bay said.

At last year’s Gala, Bring Back the Beach partygoers celebrated Mayor Eric Garcetti, Gabriela Teissier, Zooey Deschanel and Jacob Pechenik. Attire is “beach chic.” Group tables and individual tickets are available at www.healthebay.org/bbb.
