Abalone Cook-Off was a huge success!

abalone_ken-bailey_72A beautiful day and scenic location surrounded the festivities at Noyo Harbor for the Abalone Cook-Off Competition & Festival.

A huge thank you to the COOKS, the COMMITTEE, the VOLUNTEERS, the WINERIES, the ATTENDEES, and the GENEROUS LOCAL DONORS. All of you contributed to the success of MAPA’s major fundraiser that allows us to fund our mission of supporting parks, education programs in the parks, park improvement projects, and the operation of Standish-Hickey State Recreation Area to keep the park protected and open for public camping and recreation. MAPA expresses our gratitude to all of you for making this possible.
