Our 16th Annual Chip In For Kids Charity Golf Tournament on Sunday, Jan. 31st in cooperation with Farmers Insurance Open was a huge success! Over 100 golfers, volunteers and staff made a remarkable showing by helping us raise over $90,000 to keep the doors open for Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito’s seven Clubhouses and seven Specialty Programs that impact youth and families throughout Carmel Valley, Del Mar, Encinitas, and Solana Beach.
Even in the midst of a pandemic, masks and an eerie silence as the pros teed off on the South Course with no fans, a feeling of freedom and jubilation reigned as participants soaked up the 70 degree weather, amazing ocean views, and a pristine course. It was truly an experience that will live in our hearts and minds as one of the best days ever!

MOST CREATIVE PHOTO WINNERS
After identifying that our description of a "selfie" contest was a little vague, we decided to open up another photo category acknowledging overall creativity.

Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have re-opened five of our seven Clubhouses as learning annexes/after school programs. We have been able to reopen our Aquatics Center, Carmel Valley Montessori School and Middle School Sports as well as continue online music lessons through our Youth Arts Academy. In adherence to state guidelines, we are currently serving 1/3 of the youth as we normally do at 3X the cost. Your support ensures that working families have a safe and trusted place for their children to get the educational and emotional support they need during these challenging times.
