DMSEF hosts Torrey Hills fundraiser this week


The Del Mar Schools Education Foundation (DMSEF) is partnering with Torrey Hills Center on a fundraising event to be held Sept. 21-24. During the week the shopping center and its participating tenants are contributing 10 percent of their net proceeds to the foundation, supporting the Del Mar Union School District’s STEAM+ curriculum of science, technology, engineering, arts, mathematics and more.

Torrey Hills Center is home to eateries such as Porkyland, Crust Pizzeria, Cups Frozen Yogurt, Daphne’s California Greek, BBQ Republic, Subway, Starbucks and shops and services including Dirty Dogs, Supercuts, Glamour Nails and Sculpt Fusion Yoga. Torrey Hills Center is located at 4639-4653 Carmel Mountain Rd, San Diego, 92130.

The DMSEF is celebrating its 16th year of existence and for the first time ever all eight schools will start the year with at least two board directors. Five of the schools have three board directors (Ashley Falls, Ocean Air, Sage Canyon, Sycamore Ridge and Torrey Hills) and the five longest serving members are President Ty Humes, Secretary Susan Polizzotto, Andrew Zack and Treasurer Brook Herman. The board has added 13 new directors in the past year and will be potentially adding two more in the coming months.
