Friends gather to celebrate Mallory Dies' 28th birthday.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -

A celebration of life was held today in honor of Mallory Rae Dies' 28th birthday. Dies was killed December 6th, 2013, by a drunken driver in downtown Santa Barbara. 

Dozens of supporters and friends gathered Thursday on Stern's Wharf to watch the sunset, take photos and throw yellow flowers off the pier in remembrance.

"Today is about her. It's about celebrating her life. We just want to be here together, be happy, talk, tell stories about (her), continue to have her live through us," a friend of Mallory's, Ryan Todey, said.

Friends of Dies have set up a foundation and Facebook page to raise awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving.
