To celebrate this milestone year, we will have some special surprises so mark your calendars now. The location is the same as last year, Ocean View Park, 2701 Barnard Way, Santa Monica, 90405. For information on sponsorship, contact Michael Girsback.


The Westside Food Bank’s annual walk-a-thon and kick-off for our holiday food drive attracts hundreds of participants from companies, churches, schools, non-profit agencies and the community at large. There will be food & drinks, games, raffle prizes and much more. This walk-a-thon is a fun way to spend the afternoon with co-workers, family and friends while helping our less fortunate neighbors right here in our own community.
