All for a cause


I would like to express my true gratitude to everyone who came to Coogie’s on Saturday for our first Save Malibu Lagoon party. I am a Venice native and have lived in Malibu for about seven years and this was the best community convergence I have been to by far. There were so many types of people, all gathered together sharing energy for a common purpose. I hope that together, unified, we can decide the fate of our beloved lagoon. The best thing about that night is that everyone agreed that life is sacred. This journey I’ve been on for the last four months has led me to some great people, kind in their hearts and fierce with courage.

I am honored.
