6-8pm • This is an in-person, outdoor event with 250 people max
Located atop Del Mar Plaza, at the ocean view terrace

Congratulations to team “Lotta Legs” with a 2017 Acre Zinfandel from Napa Valley (bottle #75). Winners Scott & Dorrit Karl walked away with 36 bottles of wine!

Hosted by our Jr. Board, this blind wine tasting has raised almost $90,000 for Boys & Girls Clubs (BGC) of San Dieguito since the inception.

Our new 2022 venue, atop Del Mar Plaza at the Ocean View Terrace hosts colleagues, family members and friends joining together to support a great cause while participating in this happy hour style event consisting of over 100 bottles of wine for tasting, light food and friendly competition. Guests then have access to a plethora of Del Mar’s chic restaurants and bars, all within walking distance for a night out on the town or dinner out.

Net proceeds from this event go help keep our doors open for the youth and families who need us most. For 56 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito has navigated times of triumph and crisis to provide safe places for kids and teens, ensuring that all our community’s youth have equitable access to quality programs and services to enhance their lives and shape their futures. Our Club has grown significantly since its’ inception and is now the second largest Boys & Girls Club organization in San Diego County, serving nearly 6,800 registered members and impacting over 16,750 kids and teens throughout all our programs combined. On average we award over $500,000 annually in financial assistance throughout our seven clubhouses and seven specialty programs, staying true to our commitment that no child will be turned away, no matter their family’s financial situation.

*This event hosts wine lovers 21 and over only please.
