Balboa Park Lily Pond fundraiser
The Kava Lounge (2812 Kettner Blvd.) in partnership with TheMixster.com, Dataset Clothing, Elk Beats, Eric Yo Presents, and Donnie "EshOne" Valdez are holding a fundraiser to restore Balboa Park's Lily Pond, which was damaged by an estimated 300-1,000 people who participated in a water gun fight. According to a news source, police were not called during the event by participants or security, leading to approximately $10,000 in damage.
The fundraising group stated, "If a group of people can meet up and destroy a landmark, I'm sure more people can come together to help repair it/donate to the Friends of Balboa Park."
The event will take place at 9 p.m. on Friday, September 14 and a $5 donation is suggested for donation to the park. Donations to the park can also be made here.
