Del Mar Foundation launches Young Del Mar Committee

YDM_Logo2014The Del Mar Foundation recently launched Young Del Mar, a new iteration of its Children’s Committee, and is holding its first gathering for Del Mar parents on Tuesday, April 1. The event takes place at Hotel Indigo in Del Mar from 7-9 p.m. with complimentary appetizers and a no-host bar. Parents and grandparents are invited to attend to learn more about the events and activities offered to Del Mar families through the Del Mar Foundation, as well as meet with neighbors and friends in a relaxed, casual atmosphere.

“Over the past year, we heard from many parents saying how much they love the events we put on for their children and could we offer something just for them as well?” explained Kelley Huggett, chair of Young Del Mar. “This made us realize that we needed to expand our service to specifically address the needs of parents. We are also planning fun activities for our teens/pre-teens.”

Young Del Mar will continue providing exceptional children’s events and activities, such as the Fancy Nancy Parade, 4th of July Parade, Toddler’s playgroups, Annual Easter Egg Hunt, and Spooktacular Beach Bonfire, while adding activities geared towards parents. These may include gatherings at local restaurants to “get out of the house” for a relaxed evening, presentations on current topics of interest to families, and fundraising events to support Young Del Mar programs.

The Del Mar Foundation sponsors programs, makes grants, and manages nearly $2 million in endowment funds to benefit the community and the San Dieguito Lagoon. The Foundation’s community endowment provides long-term funding stability for community needs.
