After 23 years, Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary’s BocceFest - our fun fundraiser, bocce tournament, craft beer tasting, and auction has been cancelled due to the pandemic.  However, because the need of our services and support for many non-profits is even greater these days, Rotarians called on past Bocce sponsors and donors, who have generously pledged over $36,000 as of September 9.  To celebrate this milestone, the Del Mar Solana Beach Rotary will be hosting a BocceFest Celebration of Giving via a Zoom Webinar on Tuesday evening, September 15, from 5:30pm-6:30pm.
