Sunset Soiree yields funds for various Rotary projects

About 260 people came to help raise some $37,000 for the work of the Del Mar Rotary at its sixth annual Sunset Soiree on May 18 at the top of the Del Mar Plaza.

The Rotary’s goal was to raise $50,000 for its programs. Auctioneer Steve Hamann worked to make the live and silent auctions a success. Food was provided by Americana, Cafe Secret, Del Mar Pizza, Del Mar Rendezvous, If Forniao, Jamroc 101, Pacifica Del Mar, Sbicca, and Taste of Italy. Beverages came from Ballast Point Brewing Company, Ecluse, Edward Sellers Vineyards & Wines, Henry Wine Group, Holiday Wine Cellar, Pizza Port Brewing Co., PRP Wine International, St. Petersburg Vodka, Stone Brewing Co., Stuart Cellars and Wiens Family Cellars. The music of Ottopilot entertained partygoers.

Among the charitable organization on Rotary’s list of beneficiaries are San Dieguito Boys & Girls Club, St. Leo’s Head Start Program, the San Diego Blood Bank, Interact Service Clubs at Torrey Pines and Cathedral Catholic high schools and the San Dieguito River Project.
