The Boys & Girls Clubs of San Dieguito is celebrating its 50th anniversary with their annual Youth of the Year Celebration and Awards at the Del Mar Thoroughbred Club Infield Pavilion on Friday, Aug. 5. The Youth of the Year Awards acknowledges teens ages 14-18 for their achievements in leadership, service, and academic excellence. The award nominees exemplify the critical impact that the Boys & Girls Clubs have on the lives of young people. The winner of the San Dieguito award will receive a college scholarship and will go on to compete in the local, state, and regional levels for the Youth of the Year title.

The theme this year is “Endless Summer,” in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the iconic film. Guests are encouraged to sport their best beachwear for a fun night of horse races, cocktails, silent and live auctions, entertainment, dinner, and dancing. For more information visit
