Celebrating Impact and Welcoming New Leadership at the Catamaran Wine Mixer

2018-10-11 Fall Social (c)AmyMillard (103)

On Thursday, Oct. 11, I Love A Clean San Diego’s supporters, community members, and local leaders gathered at the beautiful Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa for ILACSD’s annual Fall Social, the Catamaran Wine Mixer, an evening celebrating environmental action in our community.


This year’s event, which took place as the sun set behind Mission Bay, included delicious food provided by the Catamaran and beer and wine provided by beverage sponsors Baja Brewing Company, Karl Strauss Brewing Company, and Summer Haines; an exciting auction and opportunity drawing; the chance to score premium vintages at the event’s wine pull; a wine tasting sampling a selection of fine wine; live music by Peter Hall; and more!

The festivities were also an opportunity to introduce I Love A Clean San Diego’s new Executive Director, Len Hering. Len began at ILACSD just last week, and we look forward to his leadership as we look toward ILACSD’s future.

The evening’s program kicked off with remarks by District 78 Assemblymember Todd Gloria; Ilsa Butler, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing of Evans Hotels; and Morgan Justice-Black, Community Relations Manager of San Diego Gas & Electric.

The program culminated with an award ceremony recognizing local volunteers, businesses, and community leaders whose environmental commitment make ILACSD’s mission possible. We were pleased to present awards (made from recycled glass!) to this year’s honorees:

Cox Communications:
Corporate Employee Engagement Award

 KP Charpentier:
Volunteer of the Year Award

Todd Linke:
Leading Tomorrow Award

 Rossel & Company:

Imperial Beach Councilmember Mark West:

Proceeds from the Catamaran Wine Mixer will help I Love A Clean San Diego share more environmental educational resources, further build community volunteer opportunities, and offer even more zero waste resources benefitting all of San Diego County. Thank you to everyone who celebrated with us at this year’s Fall Social for helping us to create a cleaner, healthier, more beautiful San Diego! Check out more photos from the Catamaran Wine Mixer!
