PMMC Fundraiser Reaches a Record
Pacific Marine Mammal Center raised a record $9,000 at its recent Martini Madness fundraiser.
Funds raised will go towards the emergency fund set up to help care for the hundreds of sea lion pups that stranded along the Orange County coastline in the last few months, resulting in the largest stranding crisis in the center’s history.
So far in 2013, over 325 sea lions have washed ashore and retrieved by Pacific Marine Mammal Center to begin rehabilitation.
