What is Dia del Sol?

Beach & Country Guild founders Gladys Irwin and Jeanne Blumenthal launched Dia del Sol as an intimate gathering at a private home that included lunch and games of bridge and tennis. The event has grown to host between 150 to 250 ladies annually, and over the course of the Guild’s history, Dia del Sol has been held at some of the most spectacular private residences in Rancho Santa Fe.

More recently, the event has moved to other locations, including Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, and Park Hyatt Aviara, to accommodate our growing audience, but the Guild’s dedication to UCPSD remains unwavering, consistently generating between $150,000-$250,000 annually.

Dia del Sol highlights include a silent auction, mini-live, and live auctions. The most powerful element of the luncheon is arguably the children’s fashion show, starring child models of varying abilities, including those affected by cerebral palsy.

The event’s grand finale is a professionally staged fashion show featuring fall looks from premium designer brands.

The Guild is fortunate to have a dedicated following. So much of our audience is comprised of incredibly supportive friends and neighbors who’ve been attending Dia del Sol for decades, many of whom have even been previous hostesses, and who count Dia del Sol among their most anticipated events of the year. It is our hope that every person who comes to experience Dia del Sol the first time is simply a return guest in the making!

The 48th annual Dia del Sol will be held at the luxurious Fairmont Grand Del Mar on October 18, 2017. If you are unable to attend but would like to make a donation, you may do so here.

2017 Mistress of Ceremonies – Kimberly Hunt

The Beach & Country Guild is privileged to call Kimberly Hunt a friend of our organization. huntOur longtime Mistress of Ceremonies of nearly two decades returns this year to welcome our guests and lead our Dia del Sol event.

The eight-time Emmy award-winning anchor of ABC 10News here in San Diego has received multiple additional awards for broadcast journalism throughout her career, including the Edward R. Murrow Award, a Golden Mic, and first place awards from her peers at the San Diego Press Club.

Despite her tireless commitment to excellence in journalism, Ms. Hunt still finds time to support local charities, including the Beach & Country Guild, and we are grateful for her partnership and the warmth and professionalism she brings to Dia del Sol, year after year.
