Waves of Grain Beerfest 2012 – Roundhouse Aquarium Fundraiser

These photos were taken at the Waves of Grain Beerfest 2012, held at Shade Hotel in Manhattan Beach, CA. This was a fundraiser for Roundhouse Aquarium in Manhattan Beach, an environmental organization committed to fostering and promoting the education of the oceans, tidelands and beaches of Southern California. It is tough to beat a fundraiser that showcases craft beer, but Waves of Grain did just that by providing craft beers from around the country as well as several local breweries.

Local breweries in attendance included Bootleggers Brewery from Fullerton, Cismontane Brewing Company from Rancho Santa Margarita, Golden Road Brewing from Los Angeles, El Segundo Brewing Company, Hangar 24 Craft Brewery from Redlands, Strand Brewing Company from Torrance, Smog City Brewing from Tustin and Old Orange Brewing Company from Orange. Other breweries in attendance included Allagash Brewing Company, Anchor Brewing, Ballast Point Brewing Company, Black Market Brewing Company, Chimay, Drakes Brewing, Firestone Walker Brewing Company, Karl Strauss Brewery, Kona Brewing Company, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Lost Coast Brewery, New Belgium Brewing, North Coast Brewing Company, Schneider-Weisse Brewery, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Stone Brewing Company, Unibroue and Widmer Brothers Brewing.

Torrance Fire Fighters Association 40th Annual Spaghetti Dinner

These photos were taken tonight at the 40th Annual Spaghetti Dinner to benefit the Alisa Ann Ruch California Burn Foundation which was sponsored by the Torrance Fire Fighters Association. The family friendly event was held at the Ken Miller Recreation Center in Torrance, CA. While I have lived in Torrance for more than 40 years and I had been aware of the event, it took joining the Torrance Area Chamber of Commerce to get me to finally attend one. I have to admit, I had a good time and it looked like everyone else did as well.

There were firefighters from a few different departments lending a hand as well as many additional volunteers. Several hundred people went through while we were there, so I am sure the event was a great success as far as raising funds for the Alisa Ann Ruch California Burn Foundation. Continue reading

Rock ‘n’ Roll Pasadena Half Marathon Photos

These photos were taken at the first annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Pasadena Half Marathon, which was held this morning in Pasadena, CA as a benefit to Cure Mito. Cure Mito is an organization supporting Mitochondrial Disease advocacy, awareness and research. As mitochondrial disorders affect primarily children and includes diseases such as RAD, it was pretty much a given that I was going to get up early to cover this event.

The Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series travels across the United States and parts of Europe, with each event supporting a different charity. The last event I attended in October raised monies for various charities, including ASPCA, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, TASK and St. Jude Hospital. This is a fun marathon as they set up stages with live bands performing along the course. The stage I was positioned at featured Rory Seldon with Inner Session. They played a nice mix of reggae and the runners seemed to enjoy them thoroughly. Continue reading
