San Diego’s Del Sol Chapter of the National Charity League, Inc. (NCL) announced plans to host its much-anticipated fashion show on Sunday, Oct. 28 at the Pendry Hotel in San Diego’s Gaslamp District. The region’s premier, mother-daughter, nonprofit organization chose the theme of “Fashion Academy” for its fall, annual event that showcases the Chapter’s 2021 Ticktocker class of 32 sophomores from Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Solana Beach, Encinitas, Rancho Santa Fe, Carlsbad, San Diego and Coronado. The young women will be modeling a variety of styles during an edgy, fast-paced, rock-fueled fashion show set against a backdrop styled in an iconic, high school setting.
The Del Sol Chapter totals more than 300 mothers and daughters from Coronado to Carlsbad who participate in year-round activities under the auspices of NCL, a philanthropy known for strengthening and promoting mother-daughter relationships by a shared commitment to community service, leadership development and cultural experiences. The six-year program for girls between 7th thru 12th grade creates a legacy of strong, women leaders who gain a lifelong desire to serve their communities through local charities. Hundreds of thousands of cumulative hours have been volunteered by the chapter over the last several decades for local nonprofits that include Surfrider, King Chavez Elementary School, Feeding America, Autism Tree Project, My Girlfriend’s Closet, Meals on Wheels, and the Helen Woodward Animal Center to name a few.
It is a tradition to select one charity to highlight at the fashion show with this year’s nonprofit focus on San Pasqual Academy. Located in Escondido, San Pasqual Academy is the nation’s first high school that is also a residential campus designed specifically to house foster teens. San Pasqual Academy provides a stable, caring home for teenagers coupled with a quality, individualized education that delivers skills needed for independent living.

Del Sol’s sophomore class is assisting the chapter’s senior class in a service project meant to refurbish, modernize and decorate one of the cottages that houses eight foster teenagers. The young ladies are raising funds to purchase furnishing and supplies at Target using their registration page to simplify donations. The young ladies plan to volunteer their labor in early November to create a new living environment at the cottage for the foster students. Members of the public are encouraged to donate to help make this cottage makeover a major success. Please visit: Target Registry: tgt.gifts/0b333d0a04ff4567b43534b673e05a1f
