LA-based AEG employees came together on August 23rd for a beach clean-up in memory of STAPLES Center employee Samuel Kropp.

Samuel Kane Kropp passed away on July 19, 2017, at the age of 52 in Torrance, CA, with his brother Joseph Kropp by his side.

Kropp was a self-made man, ending his work career as Vice President of Operations at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.

Redondo Beach served as the site of the clean-up under the direction of Heal The Bay. Participants focused on removing micro plastics as well as larger debris on the coastline.
