Del Mar Mayor Carl Hilliard and Solana Beach Mayor Joe Kellejian will play in the 16th annual Turf Bocce Ball Tournament, hosted by the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club. Set for Sunday, March 4, the tournament will benefit three local charitable organizations primarily, as well as fund several of the clubs’ other local and international projects. Just In Time, Voices For Children and the Community Resource Center, were chosen as the tournament’s major beneficiaries because of their strong commitment to assisting youth and families in need.
BSD Builders, Inc. is the Title Sponsor of the tournament, with over 70 other local and regional business sponsors at different levels. The annual fundraiser will be held at the Del Mar Horsepark, starting with a 9 a.m. registration, and a 10 a.m. start. More than 125 teams are expected to take the field. All teams will receive a tee-shirt, breakfast and lunch, and the opportunity for round-robin bocce play. There will also be a silent and live auction during the event. A guitar donated by Taylor Swift will be one of the items auctioned. To learn more about the tournament, sponsorships and to register teams, go to
