Del Sol Lions set fundraising record at Fiesta Del Sol

(L-R): Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce ambassador Ryan Godfrey, and Del Sol Lions members Kathleen Davis, Paul McEneany, David Cain and Chuck Dumbrell.

The Del Sol Lions raised more than $1,772 over the two-day Fiesta Del Sol, June 1-2, in Solana Beach, inching past last year’s total of $1,730. Del Sol Lions Club members volunteered and collected donations in the VIP and wine garden areas.

The donations collected at the Fiesta Del Sol will help pay for new backpacks and school supplies for young students in need through Casa de Amistad, a non-profit tutoring and mentoring program based in Solana Beach.

“This is a fine example of the community rallying around an important cause,” said Linette Page, president of the Del Sol Lions. “We are grateful to have such strong public support for our charity programs and we appreciate the Solana Beach Chamber of Commerce allowing us to raise these funds at the Fiesta Del Sol. It was a team effort.”

The Del Sol Lions are part of an international network of 1.3 million men and women in 205 countries serving those in need and youth in Del Mar, Solana Beach, Rancho Santa Fe, Fairbanks Ranch and Carmel Valley. The club meets the fourth Tuesday of the month from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Fletcher Cove Community Center in Solana Beach. Visitors and prospective members are always welcome.
