On Sept. 2, the new season of DMF’s signature cultural series, First Thursdays, was the occasion for the re-opening of Town Hall for the first time since its April 2020 closure. With a beautiful piano-flute duo performance by Holly Hofmann and Mike Wofford, the fully-vaccinated and masked audience welcomed a return to live music, and enjoyed the sight and sound of the first-ever baby grand piano on the Town Hall stage.
We also held our annual Founding Endowment Circle/major donor appreciation dinner at Town Hall on Sept. 8, honoring Joel and Rosanne Holliday. As a DMF founding director, Joel envisioned our Community Endowment in our earliest days, and both were instrumental in its establishment, for the benefit of our community in perpetuity. Our major donors are an impressive group, responsible for so much of the “good” in Del Mar!
Oct. 3 – Artists’ Reception for the new Temporary Outdoor Sculpture program, a City-DMF partnership that is bringing five artworks to the downtown area. The Del Mar Art Walk map will be available at the event and online, and we hope you’ll “walk the walk”!
