Southwestern Yacht Club is pleased to present Benefit on the Bay as our annual fundraising event in April and May of 2017. Proceeds from this event will help support the programs and services of ElderHelp of San Diego. Over 1,000 San Diegans from around the Bay participate in the event each year. We invite you to come on board as a Benefit on the Bay underwriting sponsor or auction donor and we will ensure that you and/or your organization receive maximum recognition. 

This year Southwestern Yacht Club hopes that we can count on you to help reach our goal and assist ElderHelp of San Diego provide personalized services and information to help seniors remain independent and live with dignity in their own homes. ElderHelp has assisted over 90,000 older San Diegans and their families through care management, grocery shopping, home share, home safety, information and referrals, as well as elder abuse information and education.
