Hi Everyone!

We would like to let you all know that we are having a party to kick off shark conservation activities in the Los Angeles area for 2010 on Sunday, January 24th in Manhattan Beach. There are several conservation organizations participating in this event. We will be talking about some of the success stories from 2009, specific projects and goals of these organizations in 2010, and discussing ways in which people can get involved.

We will also be debuting some Public Service Announcements for the new Shark Savers / Wild Aid “Say ‘No’ to Shark Fin Soup” campaign featuring Yao Ming, the center for the Houston Rockets. This campaign is going on in mainland China, and includes billboards at bus stops in major cities encouraging people to stop buying/eating shark fin soup.

The event is $20 cash at the door. Appetizers/hors d’oeuvres and soft drinks are included as well as some door prizes. We will be donating proceeds from the event to buy billboards for the “Say ‘No’ to Shark Fin Soup” campaign.

If you would like to attend, we really need you to go to the PINGG website at the following link and register/RSVP so that the restaurant can be prepared for the appropriate number of people.

Hope to see lots of you shark lovers there!
