The City of Solana Beach is a proud supporter of Holiday Baskets — the largest holiday distribution of its kind in San Diego County. This unique program creates a warehouse-like “shopping” experience for local families in need who are invited to fill their shopping carts with donated staple foods, clothing, blankets, toys, and so much more at the Del Mar Fairgrounds on Dec. 16, 17, and 18.
The San Diego Center for Children (SDCC) and Il Fornaio Del Mar partnered to host “Light Up A Life” toy drive and cocktail reception on Dec. 2 at Il Fornaio Del Mar. Workers with SDCC are collecting letters to Santa from local at-risk children who would never have the opportunity to receive a gift they asked for, or a gift at all. The fundraiser then goes to purchasing these gifts the children have requested.
Throughout the month of December, Del Mar will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland, ringing in the season with a host of holiday events and festivities.
Saturday, Dec. 7, kicks off “Holidays in the Heart of Del Mar Village” with a full day of interactive events, including Winter Wonderland, the annual Tree Lighting ceremony, and an outdoor movie.
If you’re buying a home anytime soon, here’s some contrarian advice: Don’t take out a fixed-rate mortgage. If you do, you’re likely to pay more than you need to.
Instead, it often makes more sense to choose a floating-rate note, also known as an adjustable-rate mortgage. Even on a small mortgage, over time you’ll save thousands of dollars. If you use the extra cash to pay down the loan, you’ll save even more.
