All jewelry has been donated out of the generosity of Kendra Scott, whose corporate ethos makes philanthropy a high priority company-wide. 100% of the proceeds from the Jewelry Pull at Dia del Sol are donated to Beach & Country Guild ad our financial support of United Cerebral Palsy of San Diego County

We are grateful for their partnership, and encourage everyone to visit the stunning Kendra Scott boutique in Fashion Valley to see their entire collection of beautiful jewelry and accessories!

 

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.
