Our Community and Beyond
One of our goals is to provide a venue for underserved children in our local area and beyond. As a community we want to ensure that we are providing opportunities for education, growth, health and well-being. The Monterey Beach SportsFest provides a fun-filled educational day with our Healthy Oceans, Healthy People Expo, Kid’s Zone, and a Movie Night. These children walk away with a special experience knowing that this community belongs to all of us by nurturing and taking care of this special place, we all take care of each other. The Montrey Beach SportsFest provides transportation and meals for these children and their families.
