Del Mar Highlands Town Center to hold holiday events, check presentation to Fire Rescue Foundation, local schools

The Del Mar Highlands Town Center sixth annual community holiday celebration will feature a visit from Santa on Dec. 5 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and a menorah lighting on Dec. 9 at 6 p.m.

“Every year, we look forward to celebrating the holidays with the community during the annual festivities at Del Mar Highlands Town Center,” said Elizabeth Schreiber, vice president and general manager for Donahue Schriber, owner and operator of the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. “This is a special time in which we give back and honor our local schools through the Save the Arts Program.”

The festivities kick off on December 5 at 5 p.m. in the lower plaza near the holiday tree with a visit from Santa.

Following Santa’s arrival, Schreiber will present the San Diego Fire Rescue Foundation with a $1,000 donation on behalf of the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. The funds will be used for the Community Education Program, which is designed to help reduce fires, fire injuries, unintentional injuries and deaths in San Diego and the surrounding region. The pilot program, scheduled to launch in 2013, is a joint venture with the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department and aims to educate elementary school children and seniors on fire safety and prevention, home fire escape plans, and more.

Schreiber, with the help of San Diego City Councilmember Sherri Lightner, will also present $1,000 donations to representatives from 15 local schools on behalf of the Del Mar Highlands Town Center. The donations are made possible through the center’s annual Save the Arts Program, which is one of the many ways the shopping center gives back to the community while creating awareness about the importance of the arts and contributing to art education in local schools. Over the last decade, the Del Mar Highlands Town Center has donated more than $160,000 in the name of the arts.

On Sunday, Dec. 9, at 6 p.m., the Del Mar Highlands Town Center will welcome Carmel Valley’s Congregation Beth Am on the upper level plaza for a menorah lighting. The Hanukkah celebration will include a presentation by Rabbi David Kornberg, performance by the temple choir and refreshments.
