 SCE, HOSPITAL AND BUSINESS GROUPS JOIN SEA DIVERS
 IN KING HARBOR CLEAN-UP
 REDONDO BEACH, Calif., Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Sometimes one has to get down below the surface to clean up.
 That's the philosophy behind the King Harbor Clean-Up, scheduled for Oct. 18. Much of the cleaning up will be done by about 250 volunteer scuba divers who will do their best to recover the things that have found their way to the bottom of the harbor, usually by accident. The dive is sponsored by Southern California Edison, South Bay Hospital, the Harbor and Pier Association of Redondo Beach, the Redondo Beach Chamber of Commerce, and will be coordinated by The Sea Divers, a diving club based in Redondo Beach.
 Along with the divers, about 150 volunteers on the surface are expected to help clean up around the harbor's docks and boat yards.
 Following the clean-up dive, all the volunteers will be treated to a barbecue luncheon held under the huge Whaling Wall XXXI mural at Edison's Redondo Generating Station. The luncheon will be hosted by Edison and served by Edison employee volunteers. Many local sponsors will be contributing items for the "goody bags," awards and prizes for the divers. Proceeds from the event will go to the Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber, a medical facility on Catalina Island designed to aid the recovery of rescued divers.
 "We're planning on an event that will combine the fun of diving with the benefits of raising money for the hyperbaric chamber and starting the effort toward a cleaner, safer King Harbor," said David Serena, event coordinator for The Sea Divers.
 There will be prizes for divers who recover the items deemed the largest or heaviest, smallest, oldest, most unusual, most amusing, most valuable and special items, as well as for the most classic or antique bottle. The prizes will be awarded at a 2 p.m. ceremony.
