Imperial Beach CA, April 5, 2016: IB Beautiful recently presented a check to the city of Imperial Beach in support the Pocket Park on Seacoast and Date. This is to coincide with their mission
statement: IB Beautiful is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the beautification of public and private lands for Imperial Beach residents. In our commitment to community development, we also host the Imperial Beach Farmer's Market to support public nutrition programs and offer fresh and organic healthy foods.
The organization was approached by Mayor Serge Dedina and City Manager Andy Hall to support the Pocket Park and other projects in the city. The organization was able to give a check for $10,000 for the park and additional $8,000 for additional projects. These funds were raised from the managing of the weekly Imperial Beach Farmer’s Market held Fridays at Portwood Pier Plaza.
