Julie Woods displays a Don Diego Legacy Brick.

Did you enjoy your day at the 2013 San Diego County Fair? From a blue ribbon to a fun family reunion, you can be among the first to commemorate a special occasion with a personalized brick permanently enshrined at the Don Diego Legacy Fountain in the Del Mar Fairgrounds’ Plaza de Mexico.

In fact, anyone, anywhere, at any time, can create their lasting legacy at the Fountain quickly and easily, online. Visit http://thatsmybrick.com/dondiegoscholarship to custom-design an attractive, 4”x 8” brick including logo/image and/or up to three lines of text. People can also purchase a replica brick that will be shipped directly to them. Prices begin at $150.

According to Don Diego Executive Director Chana Mannen, the first pallet of bricks has arrived. She reports, “The Legacy Brick program is engendering a tremendous amount of interest and excitement. We’ve already received our first orders. As racing season takes off later this summer, we expect many more people to take advantage of this unique commemoration. It’s a priceless opportunity,” she believes. “Your memory will endure at the Fairgrounds; your contribution will enable the Foundation to continue providing generous college scholarships to outstanding students.”

The Don Diego Scholarship Foundation has awarded more than $600,000 in college scholarships and grants for agricultural education since 1986. The Foundation was named after Tom Hernandez, who served as the Fair’s goodwill ambassador from 1947-1984. Funds are raised through an annual gala, the Amigo Club, which offers entrance to year-round Fairgrounds events for just $99, and other programs.
