Motion of the Ocean

| December 27, 2011 | Parties

THE PARTY Community activists and party people walked the blue carpet at The Westin Hotel Gaslamp Quarter to celebrate the 15th annual Ocean Gala. THE PLAYERS More than 300 guests raised a whopping $100,000 to protect the clean and thriving waters of S.D. for fishing, swimming and drinking. THE SCENE The hotel ballroom was transformed into an ocean-themed nightclub complete with glowing blue bars and Coastkeeper Executive Director Gale Filter dressed up as—we kid you not—a crab. And it was for a good cause, as the highlight of the night was Filter’s tear-jerking story of what it’s like for sea life in polluted waters. Where’s the checkbook? Photography by Jackie Loza
