The fundraiser will help to provide the funds for “POSITIVE” activities that will reach more than 20,000 local youth. For the first time, an outstanding “Youth of the Year” was chosen from 10 outstanding individuals who attend the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Dieguito. The “Youth of the Year” selected was Daisy Aguilar from the Boys & Girls Clubs La Colonia branch in Eden Gardens, Solana Beach.

In addition, Jill Coughlin of Del Mar was honored as the “Community Volunteer of the Year” for her many years of dedication to the youth of San Diego County. She has reached thousands of children by teaching them the joys of gardening.
