Party for the tower a hit

The Party for the Tower went off with a bang Saturday night. Community members gathered to enjoy live music, play casino-styles games and mingle, all to raise funds for a new Lifeguard Headquarters and Beach Safety Center at 17th Street.

“It was a new format, we had never done it like this. It just worked out really well,” said Piper Parry of Friends of the Powerhouse.

“People seemed to have fun, and they stayed, they didn’t leave early.”

The event raised $38,800 for the cause, which, Parry said, “far surpasses anything we’ve done in the past, and this is our 12th annual winter fundraising event.”

The crowd was at capacity with 125 in attendance at the Powerhouse Community Center. The event was sponsored by the Friends of the Powerhouse and the Del Mar Lifeguards. Dinner by Jake’s was served and complimentary parking was offered at the King Lot and Del Mar Train Station.

“The new Lifeguard Headquarters is close to becoming a reality and we’re pleased to be partnering with the City of Del Mar on this worthwhile project that will benefit the entire community,” Marla Engel, co-chair of the Friends, said.
