Through the fundraiser, community members ordered "hearts" in honor of loved ones or someone who inspired their love of learning. All proceeds from the $10 hearts went to support the Neptunian's scholarship fund for Mira Costa High School and El Camino College students with financial need.

The Neptunian's clubhouse, at 920 Highland Ave. in Manhattan Beach, is now covered in hearts and is quite a sight. (Consider strolling by with your Valentine this weekend?)

According to Heather de Roos, VP of fundraising for the Neptunians, the organization has raised $20K for scholarships so far this year, with about half coming from the "Love of Learning" fundraiser.

"We are still in the midst of fundraising for as many dollars as we can for the students at Mira Costa and El Camino in financial need," said de Roos. "Our Philanthropy Committee will determine in April how many scholarships we can grant based on the final amount we are able to raise."

The club welcomes donations to its scholarship fund at any time at http://neptunians.org/scholarship-fund/.
