The Del Mar Foundation has awarded a matching grant, totaling $20,000, to the Friends of the Powerhouse for its fundraising campaign for the new 17th Street Beach Safety Center.

The grant challenged the Del Mar community to donate up to $10,000, with a dollar for dollar match provided by the Del Mar Foundation. The Del Mar Foundation’s goal has been met and the organization has now contributed a total of $55,000 over the last two years to the Beach Safety Center project. The groundbreaking ceremony for the Beach Safety Center was held on Oct. 3 and is scheduled to open in June 2
