An annual collaborative event at Santa Monica Windjammers Yacht Club (SMWYC) to benefit the City of Hope in April netted $19,000 — $5,000 more than was raised at last year’s event.

A check was presented to the Marina del Rey Chapter of City of Hope Friday, June 3rd, by event chair Mary Anne Mendel and Patricia Salcedo, past president of the Women of SMWYC.

The April event included a crab fest and auction.
