Solana Beach Ball figures to be another success

While not yet official, the fifth annual Solana Beach Ball figures to be another sellout, said event co-chair Frank Fazio.

Proceeds from the ball, set for 6 p.m. April 17 at the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, will go to funding teachers for the science, art, physical education and technology programs at Solana Vista and Skyline Elementary Schools. Fazio said without these fundraisers, these programs would not exist.

The goal for the ball, the largest of three major events put on by the Solana Beach Foundation for Learning, is to raise $100,000 for the academics. Fazio said organizers are well on their way to reaching that amount.

“We’ve already raised ahead of what expectations were and we haven’t even gotten to the event,” he said.

A major part of fundraising comes through auctions at the Solana Beach Ball. In addition to the artwork that students of the two schools put together for sale, attendees this year will be able to bid on items donated from local businesses.

“The business owners that are in Solana Beach and the surrounding communities have been very gracious this year with regard to their donations,” Fazio said.

Finally, the NFL season being over will actually be a good thing for some attendees, as they will be able to bid for an opportunity to learn football skills from former Super Bowl quarterback Chris Chandler and current Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. The two are now living locally.
