Get In Free and Commemorate Your Day at the Races with Don Diego

amigo-clubDel Mar CA– Before you head to the Del Mar Fairgrounds to enjoy a day at the races, trot on over to www.dondiegoscholarship.org to take advantage of two opportunities to enhance your experience.

An Amigo Club membership offers free admission to every day of both 2014 Del Mar Thoroughbred Club racemeets (7/5-9/3 and 11/7-11/30), PLUS every day of the 2015 San Diego County Fair PLUS four Surfside Race Place admissions PLUS the Scream Zone and other attractions for just $99; $150 for two Amigo Club memberships.

Once you arrive at the track, celebrate your big win or simply a wonderful time with friends and family by purchasing a custom-designed Legacy Brick that will be permanently enshrined at the Don Diego Legacy Brick Fountain in the Plaza de Mexico. Featuring individualized text and images, brick prices begin at just $150.

Proceeds from both programs benefit the nonprofit Don Diego Scholarship Foundation’s educational programs. To date, the Foundation has awarded more than $640,000 in college scholarships and grants for agricultural education. Currently, 13 outstanding 2014 high school don_diego_bricks02graduates from throughout San Diego County are sharing $40,000 in scholarships at prestigious universities around the country.

Don Diego Executive Director Chana Mannen believes, “Our Amigo Club and Legacy Brick programs are two unique ways to extend fun times at the Fairgrounds while making an investment that will pay enduring dividends for students and our region.”
