Southwestern Yacht Club's Benefit on the Bay

Proceeds to benefit ElderHelp of San Diego

As we prepare for another year of giving back to our community, we invite you to join us for our annual Benefit on the Bay fundraising campaign. Last year’s campaign was a resounding success, raising over $125,000 for ElderHelp. With your help, We am confident that together, we can maintain this momentum and make an even greater impact this year.

As part of our ongoing commitment to philanthropic support, membership in our Club means becoming part of a community that values giving back. SWYC has proudly supported ElderHelp for eleven consecutive years while ElderHelp has been providing essential services to older adults in San Diego for over 50 years, enabling them to live independently with dignity. They offer a variety of services, from transportation to medical appointments to home safety modifications. With a dedicated staff and a network of over 350 volunteers they manage resources effectively, by keeping overhead costs low, so that each donation directly benefits seniors in need. For every dollar raised, 84 cents directly benefits programs and services for seniors right here in San Diego, a key factor of ElderHelp’s highest 4-star rating according to

This year, we are hosting three major fundraising events: Bottom Fishing Tournament followed by a fish dinner, a silent auction and raffle prizes led by the SWYC Anglers on May 11th, the Charity Bay Race sponsored by Sail Fleet on June 23rd, and the Beacon of Light party on September 28th. We will also be leveraging other Club events to support Benefit on the Bay throughout the year. We invite you to support our efforts by contributing in any way you can – whether by adopting a senior, making a donation at a sponsorship level: Diamond, Platinum, Gold, Silver or Corinthian, or by attending one of our many fundraising events.

We truly value your kindness and generosity, and with your support, we hope to create a brighter future for our seniors. Our theme this year, "You've Got a Friend in Me," reflects the vital role that friendship and community support play in achieving our philanthropic goals. By joining us as a sponsor, you will not only be supporting a wonderful cause, but also serve as a beacon of hope for many seniors. Every donation, no matter the size, helps to create waves of change and ensures that our seniors receive the care and support they deserve.
