Several years ago, I played bocce ball at a family reunion. I had never played it before and thought it was really fun. So, it is totally understandable to know just how popular the San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) bocce ball tournament is.
San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) is sponsoring their 18th annual Del Mar-Solana Beach Sunrise Rotary Turf Bocce Ball Family Day and Tournament. It will be held on March 23, 2014 at the Del Mar Horse Park and will start at 9:00 a.m. Those interested in participating in the tournament can get a team together and apply to compete.
The tournament is a fundraiser and the proceeds from the tournament will go to two non-profit organizations: Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT) and Reality Changers.
According to Managing Member J. Terry Aston, “We’re honored to be a VIP Sponsor of this event once again this year to provide critically-needed support to the two beneficiaries. SDSS is a catalyst for humanitarian causes in San Diego and we’re tremendously grateful to the Rotary Club of Del Mar-Solana Beach for organizing this event and engaging us in a worthy endeavor.”
Just In Time for Foster Youth helps youth who are in the foster program to transition from being in foster care into becoming self-sufficient individuals. JIT provides personal guidance at critical stages as they develop into individuals capable of independent living.
Reality Changers is a non-profit social services agency that provides disadvantaged youth with academic support, financial assistance, and leadership training. Their goal is to help the youth to be prepared and qualified to attend college. (Many times they are the first generation in their families to go to college.)
The event is very family oriented. There are activities throughout the day that are family-friendly. Usually, there are things such as face painting, a silent auction, and a luncheon. Families are encouraged to attend to watch the tournament and to participate in the activities.
San Diego Self Storage is a supportive sponsor of the event. Founded in 1972, it is one of the largest self storage providers in the county. They have 18 facilities in San Diego and additional facilities in the Los Angeles and Orange counties.
SDSS also supports active military personnel by giving them and their families a discount on any storage units that they rent. SDSS also offers a discount to senior citizens.
