Reception for preserving the Gaviota Coast a success

There is one single, public area in Southern California that is still pristine. It is virtually untouched. It's the Gaviota coast, just north of Santa Barbara. The local Santa Barbara chapter, which is currently being led by the extremely capable and passionate Sandy Lejune, has been fighting to protect this area for over a decade.

Last night in Montecito, at the home of Olaf and Eva Guerrand-Hermes, supporters of preserving the Gaviota Coast came together for a special evening reception benefitting the Santa Barbara Chapter of the Surfrider Foundation. Guests in attendance learned about the very real and pressing threats to this stretch of coast, and why it is so important to preserve the Gaviota Coast for future generations to enjoy.

The reception was organized by Steve Blank, Shaun and Carla Tomson and Sandy Lejeune... and special thanks to the Guerrand-Hermes family and Barefoot Wines.
