More than 250 people enjoyed a day of bocce, beer, food, music, and children’s activities at the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club’s 22nd annual BocceFest, raising over $42,000 for major beneficiaries Just in Time for Foster Youth and Reality Changers as well as other charitable programs.

Del Mar Mayor Dwight Worden and Deputy Mayor David Druker opened the tournament by playing the first game against Solana Beach Mayor David Zito and Deputy Mayor Jewel Edson. The Solana Beach team prevailed again, with bragging rights until next year’s event.
