Tickets on sale for benefit

The 17th annual Torrey Pines High School Foundation’s Spring fundraiser, “Pump Up the Volume,” will be held from 5:30 to 9 p.m. March 27 at the Belly Up on Cedros in Solana Beach.

“This is not a stuffy gala you have to beg your unwilling spouse to endure,” organizers said. “Throw on some jeans and stop by for some great food and fun music by the well-known local band, Atomic Groove.”

Steve Hamann will be the emcee and auctioneer. The silent auction will be available online. Tickets are $75 each or $150 for VIP reserved seating. Guests may designate a portion of each ticket price to the TPHS sport or club of their choice.

In support of the spring event, a private reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Feb. 21 at an estate in Rancho Santa Fe.
