At Last: Thanks for Helping Us Make the DMCC Gala a Success!
Del Mar’s brand-new Town Hall was transformed into an intimate venue for dinner and dancing on the evening of Saturday, October 6th during DMCC’s 18th Annual Benefit Gala. Cocktails on the Civic Center Plaza were followed by an innovative gourmet dinner, an exciting live auction, and a magnificent live performance by a jazz quartet.
President Terry Kopanski presented Lucy Zizka with the Volunteer of the Year Award for her years of service to Del Mar seniors. Lucy has done everything from leading the weekly Bridge group to driving seniors to medical appointments, to helping individuals with their computer and smartphone problems.
Our thanks to Gala co-chairs Don Mosier and Ann Feeney, as well as the rest of the Gala planning committee, for working so hard to produce a successful benefit. Our deepest gratitude goes to the donors and guests of the Gala for their generous contributions to DMCC’s mission and programs. Money raised at the Gala funds health programs, transportation, educational excursions, and more for Del Mar seniors.
Holiday Luncheon & Toy Drive
Mark your calendar for Wednesday, December 5th. We’ll be hosting our annual holiday luncheon for Del Mar seniors at St. Peter’s Parish Hall. Make sure you sign up for our email list so you don’t miss any details!
Throughout the month of November we will be collecting toys for Holiday Baskets at the Del Mar Fairgrounds. Through the Holiday Baskets program, the North County Community Resource Center provides a dignified and free shopping experience to over 6,000 individuals in need, including children, seniors, veteran families, and survivors of domestic violence, providing them with food and gifts for the holidays. Drop off your new, unwrapped toy, stuffed animal, children’s book, or item of sports equipment at our office in the Del Mar Community Building on 225 9th St during business hours, or bring your contribution to the Holiday Luncheon on December 5th.
