COAST CITIES — The Surf Cities Chapter of the National Charity League (NCL) will graduate a class of 27 high school seniors at 5 p.m. April 26 in the Grand Ballroom at the Park Hyatt Aviara Resort.
These young women and their mothers have volunteered 10,667 hours during the past six years in local North County communities.
Rebecca Klein of Carlsbad is the Senior Service Award winner. Klein volunteered 533.5 hours during her six years, which includes 124.5 this year. The Surf Cities Chapter has members from La Costa, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Olivenhain, Leucadia and San Marcos.
Some of the recipients of the Surf Cities service hours include the Community Resource Center, Meals on Wheels, San Diego Botanic Garden, Operation Homefront, City of Carlsbad, Lux Art Institute and Rancho Coastal Humane Society.
The purpose of the NCL experience is to inspire and empower women to succeed as confident, well-rounded and socially aware contributors in their communities and to foster mother-daughter relationships in a philanthropic organization committed to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences.
