This Saturday, February 28, 6 PM onwards, Seagrove restaurant 723 Whiskey Bravo is teaming up again with the non-profit Angel Flight Soars for the second annual ‘Party with a Purpose’.

Two informational sessions will be held at the The REP in Seaside. One session will begin at 4 p.m. and a second session will be held at 7 p.m.

The sessions will help answer questions, such as:
