The Longest Running Single Cause Guild in San Diego
Beach and Country Guild celebrated their 47th year raising funds for United Cerebral Palsy for the San Diego & Imperial County areas. The event was held on Wednesday, October 19th at the Park Hyatt Aviara in Carlsbad. The venue was a beautiful backdrop for the annual Dia Del Sol luncheon which always includes the standard mechanics of a reception, silent and live auctions and a meaningful program. What makes Dia Del Sol different from the many charitable gatherings is a children’s fashion show where the stars are the children models with Cerebral Palsy. Their smiles light up the room with enthusiasm and inspiration.
This year’s live auction bidders were exciting to watch as they vied for a few hot ticket items like exclusive week offerings at a Palm Springs and Montana estate. From the looks and rough tallies, the all volunteer organization will be presenting a nice donation to the local chapter to empower more clients to lead more independent and productive lives.
