Local Ice Cream Shops Host Fundraiser Night for Cottage Children’s Hospital; Two Nonprofits Seek 21+ Volunteers for Beach Cleanup Day

• Hungry to help a good cause? Satisfy your craving this week-by eating ice cream! On Wed., Aug. 19, all Baskin Robbins ice cream shops in the County of S.B. will be hosting a special fundraising event for a major area nonprofit health care organization. Proceeds from 20 percent of all sales between 6 p.m. and store closing time will be donated to S.B. Cottage Children’s Hospital. Call 879-8986 for more info.

• The Barefoot Wine Co. and S.B. Surfrider Foundation are looking for of-age wave-worshiping volunteers to “take a stand in the sand” this weekby participating in the latest Barefoot Beach Rescue Project day, a series of beach cleanups at various sites on the Central Coast. This week’s cleanup site will be at S.B.’s Leadbetter Beach (Shoreline and Loma Alta drs.) on Sat., Aug. 15, from 10am-noon. But, after the hard work is over, Barefoot will thank volunteers with a celebration later in the evening at the Endless Summer Cafe (113 Harbor Wy.). Volunteers must RSVP to participate and must be 21 or older. Call 899-2583 for more info or visit to register.
