"San Pedro has so many great groups doing incredible work...," said Ungaro. "We have been blessed with a business that has given us a 3,000 seat facility so we are committed to putting it to regular use for the community."

Known throughout the Los Angeles Harbor area for helping generations of San Pedro women and families from its landmark Julia Morgan designed building and other facilities, the YWCA of the Harbor Area had one of its most successful fundraisers in its history on March 13, 2014.

"We were honored to host 150 donors for the YWCA Harbor area because this group has done groundbreaking work for generations," said Mike Ungaro, San Pedro Fish Market Vice-President. "YWCA constitutes the 35th separate group that we have helped
in the last two years to help make the Harbor area and San Pedro a better place to live."

Believing that communities are built by people willing to dig in and solve everyday problems, San Pedro Fish Market & Restaurant has helped 35 different charities and groups in the last two years.

"San Pedro is our home, it is where we went to school, and where our business has been for over six decades," explained Mike Ungaro, Vice President, San Pedro Fish Market. "We've never been people to just give money, we would rather be a gathering spot for leaders to raise even more resources and really get to solving challenges that face Southern California."

Ranging from area schools and churches, to the YWCA, Boys & Girls Club of the Harbor Area, and many others, San Pedro Fish Market & Restaurant often offers its banquet areas and other parts of its waterside facility, along with food to area groups for events.

The support has been key to many of the groups expanding and completing their mission of improving life in the Harbor area and San Pedro specifically.

"Each year we do more and more as the growth of our business allows," said Ungaro. "It is a great motivator to continue to innovate and work hard to produce five star dining experiences so that the families that have made us a part of their lives come back, AND, we can use that talent to benefit those in need as well."
