While there are a lot of things to love about living in Manhattan Beach.. one of the best is the Hometown Fair. The 10K race is an event for the whole community... whether you are a marathon athlete or an I can do this cuz I want a tee shirt competitor this is an event cheered by the whole community. Folks line up along the route with coffee in hand to cheer on family, friends and neighbors who are competing in the race.
After the race take a leisurely stroll through the booths filled with handcrafted items made by a number of our local residents. Then it's off to the food and games areas for the whole family. These booths are staffed by non-profit community groups who raise money for their organizations.
One of the oldest of the philanthropic groups in Manhattan Beach is the Neptunian Woman's Club of Manhattan Beach. The Neptunian Woman's Club was started in 1909 before Manhattan Beach was officially Manhattan Beach. Each year the club raises money for scholarships for Manhattan Beach students and other local charities with a number of events. This year you will find us at the wine bar and at the Chips & Salsa booth. We hope you will stop by and join us again this year as we continue our goal of providing scholarships for Manhattan Beach students and local groups who need a helping hand along with some cash.
