Fiesta Del Mar a success

Community members came together to raise money for the Del Mar Hills Academy’s Extended Studies Curriculum program and had a lot of fun in the process.

The Fiesta Del Mar took place Saturday night at En Fuego Cantina and Grill in Del Mar and raised close to $30,000 for ESC. More than 180 people attended the event, which featured a silent auction with getaways, gift certificates, golf rounds, local services and “Teacher Features” – events that involve between one and four students spending time with a teacher or group of teachers outside of school.

The focus of the live auction were the children’s art and trips to Cancun and Oregon.

Another highlight of the night was the Dads’ Club’s “Instant Wine Cellar.” Hills dads donated over six cases of wine, ranging from “Two-Buck Chuck” – Charles Shaw from Trader Joe’s – to 1997 Silver Oak Cabernet Sauvignon.
