The Del Mar Foundation is pleased to welcome the Del Mar Plaza as the new lead sponsor for the upcoming season of its popular Summer Twilight Concert Series. The Plaza is owned and operated by Del Mar residents Patty and Marc Brutten, who recently purchased the property through their investment firm, Brixton Capital.
“We could not be more excited about partnering with the Foundation to showcase this great public concert series,” commented Patty Brutten. “The Plaza is part of the fabric of Del Mar, and Marc and I are committed to making it the community gathering place it was designed to be. It only makes sense for us to team with the Foundation, which is also devoted to building a sense of community while preserving and enhancing the unique character of our town.” Del Mar Foundation Board member and Summer Twilight Concerts Chair T. Pat Stubbs agreed: “The Foundation has been hosting these concerts for nearly 35 years. They provide a great opportunity for friends and family to gather together, share a picnic, and enjoy great music and a beautiful sunset over the Pacific. None of this would be possible without the support of our donors and sponsors, and we could not be happier to welcome the Plaza to this group of committed locals.”
Bob Gans, President of the Foundation, expressed his gratitude to the Brutten Family for making such a substantial commitment to our community. “Every Foundation Board member, donor, and volunteer is passionate about making Del Mar a great place to live and play, whether it be through providing free concerts, lectures, movie nights, gatherings, or awarding tens of thousands of dollars in grants to a variety of local worthwhile causes. We are grateful to Marc and Patty and the Del Mar Plaza, whose commitment will help us continue to achieve our mission.”
This year’s concert line-up kicks off on Tuesday, June 20, with perennial favorite “The Blue Eyed Soul Band.” They will be followed by “DSB – The Next Best Thing To Journey” on July 11; “The Ultimate Stones” on August 8; “The Mighty Untouchables” on August 22; and the “Sensation Show Band” on September 10.
