Arbor Real Estate and The Rob Machado Foundation created the Clean Water for Kids initiative with the goal of installing FloWater station in every school in the Newport-Mesa school district. Today the pro surfer along with representatives from Arbor Real Estate dedicated two new refilling stations that were recently installed at Ensign Intermediate school.

The purpose of the stations is to eliminate single-use water bottles -- which pollute our watersheds and oceans -- and to give students access to clean, tasty water. The Clean Water for Kids initiative has already funded and installed stations at Newport Elementary School in Newport Beach and Davis Magnet School in Costa Mesa.

Founded by Newport resident Casey O’Connor, Sean’s Pot of Gold provides people with the opportunity to donate towards an effort to supply hospitalized children across Orange County with gift baskets. These baskets will contain toys, stickers, hats, necklaces, and fun games with the aim of distracting children from doctors, medications, and the pains of being hospitalized. 

 “I know hospital stays can seem very long, so I hope Sean’s Pot of Gold can brighten their day!” Says Casey. 

Last year the organization raised close to $3,000, with the goal this year sitting at $4,000. The organization would like to do something extra special this time around in supplying the older children with tablets.

Casey originally founded the organization in

It's 5:00 a.m. on a weekday morning. Most of the residents in the Upper Newport Bay and Eastside Costa Mesa are tucked in their beds -- except perhaps the NAC rowers out on the bay -- but Matt Perry's day is already in high gear. 

Perry likes to get the day started early, "My grandfather came to California on a boxcar and became a farmer." He credits him for the way he lives and works today. "I live a farmer-type lifestyle -- get up early, work hard," he says. He remembers his grandfather telling him, "It takes a farmer’s shadow on the soil to make it grow and be successful." Today, Perry's "farm" is the Upper Newport and Eastside Costa Mesa where he has consistently represented more property owners than his competition.
