Among those in attendance at the fundraising event were Heal the Bay board members and actresses Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Amy Smart, along with Chad Lowe, Donna Mills, and Lindsay Wagner.
The 2010 “Bring Back the Beach” honorees included actor-director and supporter of the organization Nicolas Cage, corporate partner The Walt Disney Co., and longtime board members Luann Laval Williams and Jack Baylis.
