Our Story

Since 2008, the San Diego Yacht Club Community has gathered together, originally just the three Coronado Yacht Clubs, to raise funds for Make-A-Wish. The first year was quite amazing in its own right, coming up big with funds to grant three wishes. Each year has been a little big bigger with last year funding  almost TWENTY wishes! Our total donations during the past 8 years amount to MORE THAN $600,000!!

Our Mission

Providing funding for Children with Life Threatening Illnesses is our mission. When a child is suffering from a severe illness, the family suffers right along. Watching a child and his/her family experience a wish is extremely rewarding.

One of our major goals, as the largest San Diego area external Make-A-Wish event, is to include more yacht clubs each year. The San Diego Association of Yacht Clubs (SDAYC) is a big help in getting the word out at their monthly events, but we need committee representation at each yacht club. Don't be shy, join our committee today!
