This is my salute to Joe Bark for donating paddleboards for our Ocean of Hope raffle. Two winners will be chosen at 6 p.m. Sunday after the Catalina Classic, at a party at the Sangria restaurant, 68 Pier Ave., in Hermosa Beach, Calif.
You don't need to be present to win. You can still send checks made out to the Sarcoma Alliance to: Aimee Spector c/o Ocean of Hope, 1714 Havemeyer Lane, Redondo Beach CA 90278.
"There are only 2,000 tickets being sold," Aimee says. "So, the more you buy, the better your chances of winning."
Steve Reidy, of Westlake Village, won a standup board March 7 after the Cold Hands Paddle. Aimee's 7-year-old son, Slade, won the traditional 14-foot paddleboard.
"No, the raffle wasn’t rigged! His ticket was picked fair and square," Aimee says, with good humor. Slade decided to put the board back into the raffle for Sunday.
