Half Moon Bay Downtown

We are a Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation formed to raise monies to support charitable and educational activities in the Half Moon Bay, California community including events by musical artists, dance artists, photographers, writers, film makers and others.

These activities are fund raisers for educational scholarships to local needy high school graduates who will be attending college, often the first in their family to do so.

We support and encourage community involvement by providing better access with the upgrade and maintenance of the Odd Fellows Hall hosting these events, especially providing universal access for all, including the elderly and persons with disabilities.
