)-- The Orange County chapter of The Charitable Foundation presents “Cruising for a Cause,” a fun way to spend Cinco de Mayo while supporting kids who can use a helping hand instead of a handout.

Festive appetizers and libations will be served.
This event is sponsored by The Charitable Foundation, an organization run by local real estate agents. The Foundation’s Orange County chapter is comprised of agents and staff from Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties.
Tickets for the evening sail are $65 per person. The yacht departs promptly at 6:30 p.m. from Electra Cruises, 9439 Via Oporto, Newport Beach. Meet dockside at 6 p.m. for boarding at 6:15. The yacht will return at approximately 8 p.m.
“Our agents, managers, and staff had such a great time on last year’s cruise, so we decided to open it up to anyone who wants to join us and support two deserving organizations,” said Chris Perko, board chair of Orange County chapter of The Charitable Foundation. “It will be a beautiful night spent on the water meeting new people and benefiting two very special nonprofits devoted to children.”
