Sheckler golf tournament supports ‘Be the Change’
Celebrities and pro athletes including football’s Reggie Bush and basketball’s Klay Thompson teamed up with San Clemente skateboarder Ryan Sheckler at his golf tournament Sept. 9-10 to raise $300,000 for the Sheckler Foundation’s “Be the Change” outreach, the foundation announced in a news release.
The 10th annual Sheckler Foundation golf tournament, presented by Oakley, took place at the Monarch Beach Resort & Golf Links in Dana Point.
Proceeds will benefit “Be the Change,” a Sheckler Foundation initiative that helps organizations change the lives of children and assists injured action sports athletes.
Public hearing on Miramar Theater renovation
A public hearing is set for 6 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 19, at City Hall to consider plans to renovate San Clemente’s historic Miramar Theater and an adjoining former bowling alley.
The City Council will consider the landowners’ proposal to revive the cinema at 1700 N. El Camino Real as an events center, with five specialty restaurants to occupy the former bowling alley next door with shared seating.
Both buildings have been shuttered for decades.
The city, recognizing that the theater and bowling alley pre-date the city’s parking code, proposes to waive a requirement for 92 off-street parking spaces as a historic preservation incentive.
