The Beacon of Light fundraiser in support of ElderHelp of San Diego is the gala centerpiece event of SWYC’s Benefit on the Bay, an event which has evolved over the years from Weekend on the Water in 1999 to today’s all-encompassing Event including the Anglers’ Bottom Fishing Tournament and Charity Bay Race.  Benefit on the Bay collectively has raised over $900,000 for local charities.
Beacon of Light as it is known today began in 2016.  This year’s event takes place on Saturday, November 14, 2020, and features music by Jim Gibson, a solo guitarist performing  on multiple tracks as well as a coastal fare of heavy hors d’oeuvres with delicious food & champagne. Guests will enjoy the amazing silent auction showcasing fabulous gift baskets, dining experiences and tickets to theaters and local attractions.  The evening wraps up with an exciting and rousing live auction.
Tickets cost $55 per person for the evening with discounts for early signup; they can be ordered by calling the Club office 619-222-0438 or by email at
