Benefit for O’Neill Sea Odyssey 4-6 Thursday 12/4/2014 at Crow’s Nest Harbor Room

From 4 to 6 PM on Thursday, December 4 in the Crow’s Nest Harbor Room (new location), the 3nd annual Holiday Lighthouse Ceremony & Celebration will be held to benefit O’Neill Sea Odyssey (OSO).  The event will cost $50 per person, payable at the door.  Space is limited and RSVPs are required.

The event is being organized by OSO Advisory Board member Bill Simpkins and OSO Board member Jim Thoits.  The pair had also spearheaded the fundraising drive for the Walton Lighthouse at the Santa Cruz Harbor.  Some communities have holiday parades and tree lighting ceremonies.  Two nights before the Santa Cruz Yacht Club’s Lighted Boat Parade, we thought we would start a new and uniquely Santa Cruz Harbor tradition:  throw the switch to light up the Walton Lighthouse.  We hope it will become a tradition for the Seabright and Live Oak neighborhoods.

Sunset will occur around 4:51 PM and the switch around that time. Food and wine will be served. The event is being supported by System Studies Incorporated, PG&E, and the Crow’s Nest restaurant.  To reserve your space, please email Dan Haifley at by December 1.
