Rancho Santa Fe residents help support San Diego scholars


Each year the Don Diego Scholarship Foundation awards four $5,000 college scholarships to deserving high school seniors who have participated at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in some way. After an application and interview selection process, Don Diego board members select San Diego’s elite scholars.

Rancho Santa Fe residents Bob Spanjian, Jon Liss, Roxana Foxx, Leslie Barone and Susan Farrior will help present these scholarships during a fine dining and gala reception featuring Creedence Clearwater Revisited on June 28 at the Del Mar Fairgrounds Turf Club. During the cocktail hour and silent auction, 2003 scholarship winner Alysha Stehly will present her company wines grown locally here in San Diego, called Vesper Vineyards.

The event is open to the public and tickets and table sponsorship can be purchased at or call (858) 792-4210.

The Don Diego Fund has awarded more than $575,000 in college scholarships and grants for agricultural education since 1985.
