Towards the end of 2017 I started noticing that Torrance’s Smog City Brewing Company was holding a Pints with Purpose fundraiser every Thursday. After speaking with Smog City co-founder/owner Laurie Porter about it, I discovered that, being the socially conscious brewery that they are, they were donating 10% of their sales every Thursday of each month to a different non-profit. In the past they raised funds for such organizations as Food Forward and the Keep a Breast Foundation.
Since the Porter family was busy in January, they took the month off and restarted it again last night; for the month of February, every Thursday 10% of their sales goes to Marine Mammal Care Center Los Angeles. These photos were taken at Smog City, where Marine Mammal Care Center had brought their Mobile Visitors Center.
The Mobile Visitors Center had exhibits showing the types of seals and sea lions that they treat at their hospital, as well as discussed the hazards that face these mammals, and showed off the pods used for releasing the healed patients back into their environment.
Smog City will be hosting the Marine Mammal Care Center on February 8, 15 and 22nd; in March the recipient will be International Bird Rescue from San Pedro. Smog City Brewing is located at 1901 Del Amo Boulevard in Torrance and their tasting room is dog friendly. Cheers!
