On Friday, September 9, 250 guests gathered at Loews Coronado Bay Resort to Play on the Bay in support of local education. The evening consisted of spectacular food, drinks, live music, gondola rides, a silent auction and more on the bay.

“We were thrilled to host our first annual Play on the Bay event at Loews Coronado Bay Resort to benefit DonorsChoose.org. Our guests enjoyed a wonderful evening at our resort while supporting public school teachers and their local classrooms. We were able to raise $50,000 to assist local school teachers with the supplies and equipment they need to teach our children.” said Sean Clancy, Managing Director at Loews Coronado Bay Resort.
