Prior to COVID-19, Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary hosted an annual Bocce tournament to raise money for local non-profits. Over the past 23 years, with the support and help from our sponsors, donors and individual Rotarians we have raised and invested over $700,000 for programs that make a positive difference in the lives of others. We have financially and personally supported effective nonprofits such as Reality Changers, Just in Time for Foster Youth, Community Resource Center, Solutions for Change, Casa de Amistad and Veterans Village, as well as our continued push to fully eradicate polio worldwide.
This year we felt it was too risky to put on our traditional BocceFest Fundraiser. However, the need for our services and support of non-profits has not decreased. If anything, the need is even greater. We thus held a virtual fund raiser and raised over $37,000 to be donated back into our local community and the world. This culminated in a virtual celebration to thank our donors and highlight some of the organizations we have supported and expect to support in the future.
This video is a wonderful celebration for all!
