Power to the tower

On July 30, the Friends of the Powerhouse fundraising organization held a “Power to the Tower” buffet dinner and auction at En Fuego to benefit construction of a new 17th Street Beach Safety Center in Del Mar. An overflow crowd of over 200 supporters filled the popular Del Mar restaurant and the event raised over $53,000.

The lifeguard center was built 44 years ago and is badly in need of renovation and code improvements. Besides servicing the needs of some two million beach visitors, the current center also is home to other community services such as parking enforcement and beach maintenance. Depending on funding, construction for the new center is hoped to commence next year. For more information go to www.friendsofthepowerhouse.org.
