The Solana Beach Bash, sponsored by Pacific Shore Platinum, was held at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach. The event featured children’s art, a live auction, socials, and entertainment by Atomic Groove. It was preceded by the Children’s Art Walk, showcasing over 40 student art pieces, which were sold in an online silent auction.

Pacific Shore Platinum realtors Dane Soderberg, Brett Combs, and Ryan Stafford provided a sponsorship donation which will fund discovery labs for science, technology, research, engineering, arts, math (STREAM), supplemental PE, technology, and other programs at Skyline and Solana Vista Elementary schools.

The bash was hosted by the Solana Beach Schools Foundation to raise funds to bridge the gap between vital school needs and state funding to enrich the public education of all students in the Solana Beach School District. This year the event raised over $70,000 for Skyline and Solana Vista. For more information visit
