Birthday Bash to Benefit Efforts

to Restore Peace Sculpture

By Jerry Rubin


Since the theme of longtime peace activist Jerry Rubin’s 70th Public Birthday Celebration is “Still Rockin’ for Peace”, let’s make it clear up front that the event theme is NOT referring to a rocking chair. This special benefit event, which will take place on Wednesday, December 11, 2013 at Rusty’s Surf Ranch at 256 Santa Monica Pier from 7:00 to 10:00pm with doors opening at 6:00pm. The party will feature a highlighted peace symbol-shaped candle lighting and cake-cutting ceremony led by Michelle Phillips, the popular actress, activist and founding member of The Mamas and the Papas.

The birthday celebration will include a special guest musical performance by Q’orianka Kilcher, talented actress, singer and activist best known for her role as Pocahontas in the film ‘The New World’ directed by Terrence Malick.

The evening’s special guest speaker will be Alexandra Paul, dedicated activist, actress, TV host of ‘Earth Talk Today’ and former star of ‘Baywatch’. Also featured will be lots of rockin’ and dancing to the great sounds of L.A.-based Beatles tribute band Ye Olde Beetles. Serving as the event’s special guest M.C. will be Chris Carter, popular KLOS FM radio host of ‘Breakfast With the Beatles’. Rubin, a longtime Santa Monica resident who is no relation to the late 1960’s activist, says he promises his 70th birthday event will be the most “fun-for-a-good-cause” time that anyone could have anywhere on a Wednesday night... other than a large energetic candlelight vigil or peace rally at the Federal Building. Rubin says he thanks the Conrad family and community for their ongoing and dedicated efforts to save ‘Chain Reaction’, and feels confident they will ultimately be successful.

All proceeds from Jerry’s benefit birthday event will be used to assist community efforts to directly help fund the repair and restoration of the 26-foot-tall ‘Chain action’ iconic nuclear mushroom cloud warning monument made of large chain links, which  was designed, created and gifted to Santa Monica by the late 3-time Pulitzer Prize winning political cartoonist Paul Conrad through a $250,000 donation by philanthropic benefactor Joan Kroc. The public art peace sculpture, which was unanimously designated on July 9, 2012 as a City of Santa Monica Landmark by the Santa Monica Landmarks Commission.

The birthday “peace cake” is being provided courtesy of Cake and Art, the creative West Hollywood bakery that has revolutionized the art of cake design and has been celebrating 35 years of “the edible art experience”.

Rubin says, “When I make my birthday wish and blow out the candles, I will be inviting everyone at the party to make their own personal wish as well.”

Admission at the door: 70th Birthday Gift Donor: $70 (tax deductible; General Admission: $20;  Low Income: $10. All ages welcome.
