Tournament proceeds will support many youth and humanitarian programs, both locally and internationally. Since its beginning, the tournament has raised over $550,000 for the benefit of our communities and the world.

The two major beneficiaries again this year will be Just in Time for Foster Youth and Reality Changers.

Just in Time for Foster Youth provides transitioning foster youth with guidance and support along their paths to independence as adults. Reality Changers provides youth from disadvantaged backgrounds with the support and training to become first-generation college students. These are only two of the many nonprofit organizations and programs supported by both by bocce tournament proceeds and the direct personal help from Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotarians.
