We are proud to announce that last week’s 2nd Annual Sip and Shuck raised $10,040 to benefit Laguna Beach-based Pacific Marine Mammal Center. Guests had the unique opportunity to experience a variety of hand-shucked oysters and sparkling wines from around the world, all while enjoying panoramic ocean views at the oceanfront restaurants. Executive Chef Rainer Schwarz and his team also prepare delicious tastes from both The Deck and Driftwood Kitchen to complement the oyster selection!
From everyone who helped put on this event, thank you to everyone who attended and made this a great success.
