Join Us October 1 to Honor Our Heroes of the Reef


2015-06-26

Please join the Reef Check Foundation on Thursday, October 1st to celebrate the reefs and oceans! Reef Check's 2015 Save the Reefs, Save the Oceans Gala will be on the beach at the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica. The evening will feature fun music, unique auction items, delicious food, and an opportunity to meet our amazing honorees and some of the thousands of volunteer Reef Check EcoDivers who monitor Californian and tropical reefs as part of the Reef Check Foundation's citizen scientist programs.

We will recognize the contributions of our “Heroes of the Reef” each having demonstrated an exemplary commitment to ocean conservation. This year, we honor Russ and Charlotte Lesser, ocean advocates and long-time supporters of Reef Check. Russ, the President of Body Glove and a long-standing member of Reef Check’s Board of Directors, and his wife of 50 years, Charlotte, are an extraordinary couple devoted to their family, friends, community - and marine conservation.

We also will be recognizing 10 Reef Check California divers who have been surveying rocky reefs with us for 10 years.
