The Mavericks Community Foundation is planning a fundraiser to replenish the Coastside Victims Fund established in partnership with the San Mateo Credit Union in the wake of the mass shootings of Jan. 23.
The event is set for 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on May 18 at the credit union office, 350 Convention Way, in Redwood City. The $50 ticket includes drinks, appetizers, live music and a silent auction. Former U.S. Rep. Jackie Speier is scheduled to speak as well as San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, and Belinda Hernandez-Arriaga, founder of Ayudando Latinos a Soñar, a Half Moon Bay nonprofit that has been at the forefront of victims’ recovery efforts. To purchase tickets, visit maverickscommunityfoundation.org/victimsfund.
The Coastside Victims Fund provides grants to individuals regardless of citizenship status, and there are no income requirements or lengthy eligibility applications. There are no restrictions on how the funds can be used, which allows recipients to cope and manage their needs as they see fit. The organizations say 100 percent of donations will benefit shooting victims and their families.
The fund has raised about $160,000 to date and includes contributions from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and the California Wellness Foundation along with a number of private donations. Mavericks Community Foundation and San Mateo Credit Union both seeded the fund with $10,000 each. There is a fund oversight committee spearheaded by Suzanne Knowlton, vice president of marketing and community relations for the credit union’s community foundation.
This version corrects the date of the event.
Is the date of this event really March 18? That was two months ago...

Saw that Jeff made the national news, again. Loved this quote:
“And during this time, we had a very, like, insanely activist, feminist just going off on us,” Clark says. “Sabrina Brennan … she’s the reason the contest didn’t happen for six years.”
Wow! Brennan is the reason Jeff got hosed by GG? Brennan is the reason the wind blows from the wrong direction? Brennan caused Covid? Brennan is responsible for the greed driven poor choices? Brennan sold the contest to the WSL for 500K?
None of it's Jeff’s fault? Jeff Clarke is just a victim and a prime example for what passes as a man in America these days!! Blaming one’s failures on the Radical Feminists is about right for today's modern man baby. Hey Jeff, you forgot to add that Brennan is a Soros funded lackey who works on behalf of Hugo Hugo Chavez at Dominion voting systems.
You really showed everybody what a bunch of whiney turds male Californai born surfers have become. Very amusing.
Oh heck, I messed this one up. I owe an apology to Muller, Arriaga, and the Mavericks Foundation. They are not associated with the man baby. I should have checked before smearing them. Apologies.
