Saying Farewell and Looking Forward at Toast the Coast

On Sunday, June 10, I Love A Clean San Diego celebrated our annual Summer Social, Toast the Coast! More than 125 friends and environmental advocates joined us at Karl Strauss Tasting Room and Beer Garden for a fun, family-friendly afternoon featuring craft beer from Karl Strauss, delicious tacos from Rubio’s Coastal Grill, live music from Shannon Patiño, and an exciting raffle that included a stay at the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa, Lauryn Hill concert tickets, and much more.

Musician, Shannon Patiño, rocked at Toast the Coast!

Our guests couldn’t stop smiling after winning a raffle prize!

The event culminated in a celebration of Pauline Martinson, who stepped down after 12 years as I Love A Clean San Diego’s Executive Director, and the extraordinary growth ILACSD has experienced under her leadership. Pauline also announced that Natalie Roberts DeCarli, ILACSD’s longtime Senior Director of Operations, will serve as Interim Executive Director during the transition.

We will miss you, Pauline!

Proceeds from Toast the Coast support ILACSD’s efforts to beautify and preserve San Diego County’s beaches, parks, and canyons; environmental education programs for youth and adults, and recycling and zero waste resources.

This year’s event, the Catamaran Wine Mixer, will take place from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, October 11, at the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa as the sun sets over Mission Bay.
