Councilwoman Janice Hahn attended a grassroots fundraiser for the Cabrillo Marine Aquarium youth programs last Saturday, where she paid tribute to hosts John and Debbie Sue Stinson of San Pedro for organizing their 16th-annual event.

This year’s effort raised nearly $5,000. “It’s a record,” said John Stinson.

In keeping with the aquatic theme, Finnie the fish is the mascot of the annual fundraiser. Finnie changes with the times and is a presidential candidate this year, hence the campaign sign and patriotic T-shirts modeled in the photo.
