On Sunday, May 18th Killer Shrimp Marina del Rey, The Mermaid Hermosa Beach hosted an amazing Exotic Car Charity Run with Exotic Collective to raise funds and awareness for Jesse Billauer’s “Life Rolls On” Foundation. As the sun rose on this very special morning, millions of dollars in Exotic Cars from across Southern California converged in the parking lot of Killer Shrimp Marina del Rey to meet Jesse and sit down for a light breakfast looking over the beautiful Marina. Soon after breakfast, the loud rasps of the exhaust wailed down Admiralty Way as the participants headed to The Mermaid in Hermosa Beach to enjoy the beautiful beach weather, fantastic food and display these automotive masterpieces for all beach-goers to enjoy and photograph for the day. The event was a great success and we are happy to be able to raise awareness and funds for this tremendous foundation. www.liferollson.org
