Supervisor Joe Simitian 2013 Ocean Hero

The Portola Hotel as 2013 Business of the Year
As one of our biggest supporters in Monterey, Portola Hotel and Spa has hosted multiple events for Save Our Shores including the Annual Monterey Beer Garden event (coming up on September 28th!). They have also been protecting their local beach for years as an Adopt-A-Beach group for Del Monte Beach.
Nancy Connelly as 2013 Volunteer of the Year
Nancy is a Sanctuary Steward class of 2011 graduate who has volunteered over 330 hours with SOS! Nancy is always willing to help out at events with a smile on her face and passion in her heart. We love you Nancy!
