Dodgers will join Heal the Bay for Santa Monica Beach cleanup on Feb. 15
The cleanup will provide fans with an up-close-and-personal opportunity to help clean up Santa Monica Beach with current and former Dodgers players and personalities. Scheduled to attend (subject to change): Matt Kemp, Rafael Furcal, Fernando Valenzuela, Pepe Yñiguez, broadcaster Charley Steiner, Jay Gibbons, Gabe Kapler, Ron Cey, Lou Johnson and Shawn Green.
Space is limited and available on a first-come basis and participants must register in advance. Attendees should plan on meeting on the sand at lifeguard tower 1550, just north of the Santa Monica Pier.
All cleanup supplies will be provided, but attendees need to bring their own water and sun protection. Participants can enter to win Dodger tickets and other raffle items while at the event.
