A paddle-out was held Sunday at Marine Street beach for William "Willie" Calabrese, who on Aug. 31. Calabrese, 20, was a La Jolla High School graduate and former La Jolla Water Polo Club teammate.
Those wishing to make a donation to the family are asked to make checks out to the La Jolla United Methodist Church with "Willie" in the memo line. Online donations can be made by going to the La Jolla Water Polo online at lajollawaterpolo.com/w/ and following the link to Willie Calabrese Donations.
Donations will be used to help the family with funeral expenses. Excess funds will be donated in Calabrese’s name to the Burn Institute and Vista Hill Foundation, and for scholarships in his name for the San Diego Junior Lifeguard Foundation, Pacific Beach Christian Church Summer Camp, La Jolla Water Polo and Boy Scout Troop 506 Summer Camp.
