Sand 'N Snore

About 240 members of the medical staff and their families hit the beach at this year's Sand 'N Snore event. This was a record year for attendance at the annual outing, which was held July 16-17 at the Jonathan Beach Club in Santa Monica.

Participants had a barbecue dinner on the beach and many stayed the night in their tents on the sand.

Special thanks go to Marjorie Santore-Besson in the President's Office and her assistant Erika Waring for organizing this event on behalf of the medical staff.
