Redondo Beach About Town
Redondo Union JROTC Burger Night
Redondo Union High School’s Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program is hosting a Burger Night Fundraiser on Friday, March 15 from 5 to 9 p.m. at American Legion Post 184, 412 Camino Real.
All proceeds go to support the JROTC program, which helps develop leadership, discipline, and character in its members, and provides a leg up into future Marine Corps ROTC programs and options.
Pre-sale tickets are $10, or they can be purchased for $12 at the door. Tickets can be paid for at the ASB Finance Office at RUHS, and checks can be made out to the high school.

Participants will learn about and use the library’s new virtual reality equipment using the Oculus virtual reality device and “Oculus First Contact,” an introductory program that functions as a VR toybox, drawing inspiration from 1980s aesthetics.
