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, October 1, 2022, and features 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.  This year we will again offer our silent auction on-line using the ElderHelp website.  Closer to October 1st look for updates on how to use the website and bid on-line.  All silent auction items will be available for viewing and additional bidding on the night of the event.  The evening wraps up with an exciting and rousing live auction.
Tickets cost $55 per person for early signups (through August 27, 2022) and $60 per person thereafter.  Early signups will be available during Opening Day Weekend, various Friday Night Entertainment events and the Luau in August or they can be ordered by calling the Club office 619-222-0438 or by email at
