21st Birthday Gala
It’s DMCC’s 21st birthday, and we plan on celebrating in style! On Saturday, October 2, led by co-chairs Mary Walshok and Linda Chisari, we’ll be taking over the Del Mar Civic Center plaza with cocktails, dinner, and entertainment. The only ID required to join the party is a Covid-19 vaccination card! Look for an invitation to join our supporters from Honorary Committee chairs Nicole and Will Holliday, and we’ll hope to see you at our biggest benefit event of the year!
Flu Clinic – Save the Date
Did you know that approximately 80% of flu deaths occur in older adults? It’s more important than ever to get your flu vaccine this year because of the added stress the Covid-19 pandemic is putting on the entire healthcare system.
DMCC has a flu vaccine clinic planned for Friday, October 15 on our outdoor patio at the Del Mar Community Building, 225 9th St. CVS pharmacists will be there to dispense high-dose shots specialized for the 65+ population, and shots are free with Medicare and most private insurance plans. Have a snack on us while you enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean and say hello to friends and neighbors (from a safe distance of course!) Registration is required; for more information (or to receive assistance in finding a flu shot because you cannot make it to our clinic), call us at (858) 792-7565.
