Since 2012, Shelter to Soldier founder and president Graham Bloem, his wife Kyrié, and friend Krys Holc have synergistically paired “specially trained rescue dogs to post 9/11 combat veterans working through post-traumatic stress and/or TBI (traumatic brain injury).”

To accomplish that mission, they have incredible support and fundraisers like this ‘Be the Light’ at the Inn at Rancho Santa Fe. Guests including Tina and Bruce McCullough, and Mia Parks arrived to the festive sound of music by K. Emeline, tempting auction items, and mingling with hero soldiers and their very well-trained rescue dogs.

Dinner with a live auction presented big donations including dinner for 10 cooked by chef Brian Malarkey. Later, a poignant speech by soldier/engineer Christine Wonder. With her pup alongside, Christine revealed a determined drive to learn, and learn more that got her to the top of commanding a fleet of Apache helicopters.

The David C. Copley Foundation and Petco LOVE have been steadfast supporters, and this year COX was the lead sponsor with sponsor Griffin Funding taking a whopping four tables… Oorah!

Meanwhile, beachside by Scripps Pier, the Legends of Surfing Invitational benefiting the Moores Cancer Center at UC San Diego was held. Although modified per COVID safety, the event still raised a half million net! The numbers get better with approximately $10 million brought in since its founding 28 years ago by Sam Armstrong and John Otterson.

Among the support that’s been there from the start are Sam Iacobellis, Fred Borrelli, Jon Roseman the king of Cloudbreak in Fiji, Genentech, Tyler Callaway, and humbly me as volunteer photographer, media surfer, press, and table sponsor.

The winning team was Cymer, but frankly the community is the ultimate winner as major cancer research breakthroughs are being made by Dr. Scott Lippman and his team.

Till next time!

Christina M. Brekkke is Larry Elder’s twin sister and is doing this scam to help get Larry elected governor Sept. 14.



She was my yoga teacher at Mike Pence Middle School and taught me all kinds of positions to attract horny boys. My favorite is doggy style - the one her brother Larry taught me by using a poor bleeting sheep at their farm in South Central.

I can tell by your crappy grammar that “anonymous” is really you, Melania.

Your English tutor and boyfriend, fake Jamaican Larry Elder,

did a lousy job - just like he would if he is elected governor on Sept. 14.

The only thing he is good at is giving free handjobs to any Republican stupid enough to vote for him. Ivanka told me you are now teaching young voters Trump Family Values by also giving handjobs to unvaxxed 18 year old teens behind the roller coaster at Belmont Park.

Melania, I liked you so much better when you were just my skank Slovenian stepmom and we would do it doggystyle in the Lincoln Bedroom when dad was off spouting nonsense to his QAnon and kook Republican followers at his rallies...

KathleeKilpatri is my love child I had with Supreme Court justice Amy Comey Barrart.

She is doing this scam to help me be California’s first Jamaican Governor. After we did it doggy style, she got enough of my pubic lice to protect her from Covid.

Kathleen is the best ho daughter a Mack daddy like me could ever have - and the boys at Forrest Gump Middle School all agree !
