Rod's-DayROD’S DAY, a local fundraising tradition, returns to Playa del Rey for its 21st year from 4 to 10:30 p.m. Saturday, July 20 at Mo’s Place, 203 Culver Blvd. What began in the memory of Rod Fasone, who died of colon cancer in 1992 at the age of 21, has for more than two decades raised money toward California Oncology Research Institute. The annual summer evening party will feature a sky-diving exhibition, food buffet, raffles and a silent auction.
In recent years, Rod’s Day organizer Dennis Fasone, Rod’s father, has retired to Las Vegas. However, he still has many friends and warm memories from his 25 years living in Playa del Rey and Westchester. Free admission. Information, (310) 883-0096.
