Benefit for Baykeeper's Gulf Oil Spill Work at Doc's Clock

Next Friday, Doc's Clock will host a fundraiser to benefit San Francisco Baykeeper's work to help respond to the Gulf oil spill. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of certain beers will be donated to Baykeeper.

Since the spill began more than a month ago, Baykeeper has been in steady contact with the Gulf Coast Waterkeepers, providing technical support and guidance on Coast Guard and oil spill response regulations, and two staff members have been stationed with Gulf Coast Waterkeepers, helping with on-the-ground response efforts.

Please support our Gulf oil spill initiative by joining us for this benefit at Doc's Clock, a certified San Francisco green business. RSVP via Facebook here. We hope to see you there!

You can also support our efforts by making a donation to Baykeeper today. Please support the the Gulf Coast Waterkeepers by making a donation at
