Pismo Beach

Woods Humane Society in San Luis Obispo has received more than $600 raised during The Cliffs Resort and Marisol’s Karmic Pizza Happy Hour.

During the happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. each Thursday, The Cliffs and Marisol in Pismo Beach offer free pizza and pasta with the purchase of a happy hour drink, hoping that customers will donate their food savings to the night’s designated local charity. They also donate $0.50 from each happy hour drink ordered.

Recently, David Kline of Marisol presented Steve Kragenbrink of Woods Humane Society with the donation check.
