It’s that time of year again, folks. Santa Monica Next is getting ready to throw its second-annual summer cocktail party fundraiser on Saturday, July 30.
As a nonprofit news site, we rely on the generosity of our readers to support our work, and this year, we have an extra reason to celebrate: the Los Angeles section of the American Planning Association (APA) honored Santa Monica Next this year with an Award of Excellence in its “Communications Initiative” category.
Your donations support the award-winning content you have come to expect from us. From our in-depth looks at our growing housing crisis, to our spotlighting local businesses, to keeping tabs on how our city is making it easier for us to get around sustainably, we strive to keep you informed about the issues facing the community.
Help us keep up the good work and join the Santa Monica Next steering committee, Abby Arnold, Juan Matute, Damien Newton, Grace Phillips, Joni Yung, Carter Rubin, and Scott Schonfeld, and the site’s editor, Jason Islas for a festive summer cocktail party with signature drinks at Abby’s Ocean Park home. Drinks will include the Expo-tini, High Rise Highball, and Manhattan by the Beach.
You can RSVP here for more details. We hope to see you there!
