Come back soon for some auction item highlights!

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 approximately $850,000 for local charities.
Beacon of Light as it is known today began in 2016.  This year’s event takes place on Saturday, May 18, 2019, and features music provided by Stage4 Band. The activities of the evening include a coastal fare of heavy hors d’oeuvres with Salmon and Prime Beef carving stations, Staff Commodore Geoff Longenecker’s specially distilled Seven Caves Rum paired with tastings of his Louisiana Jambalaya, free flowing champagne and sangria and tastings of Skrewball Peanut Butter Whiskey. The event includes an amazing silent auction showcasing fabulous gift baskets, dining experiences and theater tickets to “Fiddler on the Roof” and “Miss Saigon" as well as many other adventures. The evening wraps up with an exciting live auction that can have the winning guests soaring over San Diego in a classic bi-plane or relaxing in a fabulous golf course home in San Felipe, Baja California, Mexico.  
Tickets cost $55 per person for the evening; they can be ordered by calling the Club office 619-222-0438 or by email at
