Who BocceFest Benefits

Over the past 21 years, the Bocce Tournament has raised over $625,000 which the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club has invested back into our local and international communities. Please help us once again support our beneficiaries and our community.

BocceFest 2019 proceeds will be distributed to many worthwhile non-profit organizations in addition to the Major Beneficiaries who work alongside DMSB Rotary to make this event happen. Some of our other past beneficiaries are listed below. Matching donations from individual DMSB Rotarians, other Rotary clubs, and the Rotary Foundation extend the power of funds generated from the tournament. Also, many Rotarians personally work with the organizations we support.
