Benefiting the Del Mar Village Association, proceeds from the event are dedicated to enhancing the vitality of the historical village. A silent auction will feature gifts and experiences from local vendors and sponsors. As the sun sets and the night comes alive, guests will be treated to a tiki torch paddle out and surf show by the Del Mar lifeguard crew.
