Bahia Belle Hosts 3rd Annual Cruise For A Cause In November To Benefit San Diego Food Bank

San Diego – The Bahia Belle sternwheeler on Mission Bay is hosting the 3rd Annual Cruise for a Cause during weekends in November to benefit the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank. Guests may board the vessel during family hours or cocktail hours free of charge with a donation of five nonperishable food items.

The Bahia Belle Cruise for a Cause runs Friday through Sunday between the Bahia Resort Hotel and the Catamaran Resort Hotel and Spa. Family Hour is from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. At 9:00 p.m., the cruise becomes a 21-and-over venue with live entertainment, and the ship docks at its final destination at 1:30 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 11:30 p.m. on Sundays. Guests donating 10 or more items will also receive a complimentary boarding pass for a future cruise.

“The Bahia Belle has been an entertainment hub for families and partygoers in San Diego since 1961,” said Bahia Resort Hotel General Manager Jim Greene. “It’s only fitting to partner with another San
Diego institution and help those members of our community in need. We hope to eclipse last year’s
collection total, and with the Bahia Belle’s meteoric rise in popularity, we think we can do it!”

The 2014 Cruise for a Cause collected 240 pounds of food, which was used to provide meals to people in need. The Food Bank, which is the largest hunger-relief organization in San Diego County, distributes approximately 22 million pounds of food per year and serves approximately 320,000 people per month on average.
