Camp Stevens will again play host for this always much-anticipated annual gathering of passionate and dedicated friends and supporters of the Volcan Mountain Range and the Volcan Mountain Foundation (VMF). We're excited that Chef Jeremy Manley, of Jeremy's on the Hill known for his inventive farm-to-table, sustainable fare will provide a delicious catered dinner. Beverage contributors include Apple Lane Orchard, Julian Hard Cider, La Serenissima Vineyards and Winery, Milagro Farm Vineyards and Winery,Nickel Beer Company, Shadow Mountain Vineyards & Winery, and Volcan Mountain Winery. While the event is a terrific opportunity to have fun enjoying good friends, delicious food, and local libations, it also contributes vital proceeds for VMF's programs and operations. We hope you'll plan on joining the celebration! Rancho La Puerta is again generously donating a week’s stay for two at the luxurious destination fitness resort and spa in Tecate, Mexico, and Mike Evans' Tree of Life Nursery in San Juan Capistrano is once again donating quality native plants for the much sought-after Native Plant Sale. Supervisor Dianne Jacob is being recognized with the 2016 Guardian Award for her decades of support in conserving and protecting the pristine natural environment of the 15-mile long Volcan Mountain Range. The Supervisor is playing an important part in Connecting Kids & Communities With Nature--natural communities, rural communities, urban communities, and underserved communities. Vans donated by Supervisor Jacob and The San Diego Foundation are key to filling the transportation gap that is commonly a barrier to connecting underserved youth with nature and the vital natural resources that San Diegans depend on for clean water, air and our quality of life. The vans are an essential component in the San Dieguito River Watershed Explorers Program that is formally launching in February. It will connect kids with the headwaters and crest of Volcan Mountain, to the coast at San Dieguito Lagoon in Del Mar and explorations all along the San Dieguito Watershed. The Volcan Mountain Foundation is proud to be a founding partner in this important program led by past Guardian Award recipient, Diane Coombs, and excited to be collaborating with the San Dieguito River Park, the San Dieguito River Valley Conservancy, and the San Diego Archaeological Center on the San Dieguito River Watershed Explorers Program. Volunteers: It takes passionate and dedicated volunteers to coordinate the annual Dinner Dance. Do you want to roll up your sleeves on the night of the event? Being an Event Volunteer is very gratifying and really fun! To volunteer, please contact Nicole at or 760-765-2300.
