Toast the Coast Commemorates 16 Years of Clean Water
This year, 165 clean water supporters joined us at Toast the Coast and helped raise $109,000 to support Coastkeeper's mission. We are grateful to Newport Dunes Resort and all our supporters for helping us continue the work we have been doing for clean water in Orange County these past 16 years. We'd also like to thank our major sponsors; Chevron, SA Recycling, ARES, Contech Engineered Solutions and Southern California Edison.
