PANIC EN LA PLAYA
It’s now been a decade of Good People doing good things at Panic en la Playa and that tradition continues. At Uno we raised enough cash to plant some trees to shade a local school. At Diez we raised enough to BUILD a school with the auction yielding a record-setting $82,240! The fans' kindness was also on full display at Sunny’s golf outing, and at Bingo with Southern Avenue. A special thanks to everyone who came out to the Day of Service sponsored by Mike's Amazing. Together we jam-packed over three hundred food bags (made from upcycled Hard Rock Hotel uniforms) that will stock the pantries of our local neighbors in need. The Good People of Panic fuel Positive Legacy’s mission and it’s tough to overstate the cumulative impact they've had on this community over the years.
