CEA "Save Our Seas" Festival Gala Event

On February 20 & 21, CEA hosted its third annual "Save Our Seas" festival, which was culminated by a Silent Auction at the Lol-Ha Beach Bar and a Gala Event Dinner / Live Auction on Thursday February 21.  The gala Event dinner was held at the CEA Center, and it was catered by Turtle Bay Cafe.  Needless to say, the town turned out in great numbers, and it seemed like it was a huge success for CEA.
