A December 23 motorcycle accident that claimed the life of a Redondo Beach mother has brought the greater South Bay community together in support of the sons she left behind. Shade Hotel is hosting an event on Feb. 7 to raise funds for Shaun Jensen, 23, a full-time college student; and his brother Alex, 25, who has special needs.
The Manhattan Beach Police Officers Association has been collecting funds to support the Jensen brothers. Tickets to the Feb. 7 event cost $75 in advance and $100 at the door. The event, sponsored by local businesses, will include a silent auction, food and drink, and music. All proceeds will benefit the Jensen brothers.
To read more about the Jensen brothers, check out these news stories from the Daily Breeze and from Inside SoCal. (In related news, Manhattan Beach and CalTrans have agreed to traffic restrictions at the fatal accident site on Sepulveda Blvd. and 8th Street in Manhattan Beach.)
To attend the event, register at Shade Hotel, or contact Shaunna at 310-406-6801. If you would like to contribute to the fund, please make checks out to the Manhattan Beach Police Officers Association, P.O. Box 3542, Manhattan Beach CA 90266.
