Fishing for Second Harvest Offers Travelers the Opportunity to Make a Difference

DANA POINT, CA – February 26, 2015 – This summer, guests staying at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel may volunteer to improve and assist the local community while vacationing in beautiful Southern California. From Memorial Day and Labor Day, Fishing for Second Harvest provides guests with a day of sport fishing off the coast of Dana Point. At the conclusion of the trip, all of the fish the guests caught are cleaned and donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.

The sport fishing excursion includes live bait and frozen squid, conventional rod rental with tackle pack, and a one-day California State Fishing License. The cost is $75 per adult and $50 per child (3 to 12); the benefit is fresh food for those in need in Orange County.

Fishing for Second Harvest is a Give Back Getaway program that offers the unique opportunity for Ritz-Carlton guests to volunteer under The Ritz-Carlton Community Footprints program. Focused on social and environmental responsibility, the sport fishing activity positively impacts the Community Footprints pillar of supporting Hunger and Poverty Relief. Many Ritz-Carlton guests are active volunteers in worthwhile activities at home and also have an interest in becoming more involved in the region where they are spending their vacation. Fishing for Second Harvest is a way for the resort to partner with guests to provide an experience that is memorable and personally enriching while also supporting a local charitable organization.
