This year marked the seventh annual event for Mission Bay Yacht Club of providing boat rides, hamburgers and hot dogs, entertainment and beach exposure. According to club members, many of the foster children have never been to the beach, despite living in San Diego.
The Mission Bay Yacht Club provides a secure surrounding for them to enjoy the wonders of the bay.
Club members made it a special day for the children with prizes and stuffed animals for all the kids.
“It is truly a joy for the club to entertain these wonderful children who, for no fault of their own, have had such an incredible disruption to their lives,” said Carol Bentley Ellis, who organized this year’s party for the children on behalf of the yacht club.
