The Manhattan Beach Young Professionals are throwing their 2nd Annual Beer & Music Festival, otherwise known as SummerFest 2012, this coming Saturday, July 14. Sponsored by Chevron, the proceeds from this fundraiser will go to benefit the Manhattan Beach Chamber of Commerce.

It runs from 3-6 PM, with an after party at 12 and Highland Restaurant.
