Artw.Title 001The event may have been at Dog Beach in Del Mar, but the Vigilucci’s Beach Bocce Ball World Championship XXIX held Saturday July 18, 2009 raised about $50,000 for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad, according to a story in the Coast News.

“The event has exceeded my expectations,” Pat Maldi, marketing and special events coordinator for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad, said. “It’s an easy crowd. They come out to have fun.” . . . During the life of the event, more than $500,000 has been raised according to longtime emcee Brian Cook. “Bottom line is that this is about the kids,” he said. Maldi said the tournament was expected to bring in at least $50,000 this year.

We’re just sorry we missed it. It’s kind of hard to leave the beach on a sunny Saturday morning.
