Rancho Santa Fe Youth Soccer presents “Soctoberfest: Beer, Brat and Bretzel,” from 6-11 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Cielo Club to benefit the club’s Academy and Attack programs. The Bavarian-themed evening includes drinks, dinner and dancing to “Music as You like It.”
Funnyman Russ T. Nailz will auction off a range of prizes including a 6-night stay at a luxurious Hawaiian condo in Kolea, a gated community in the Waikoloa resort area on the big Island of Hawaii. Kolea is located along the white sand beaches and sheltered water of Anaeho’omalu Bay, home to giant sea turtles and migrating whales. The three-bedroom condo sleeps six, with a gourmet kitchen, patio and barbecue, and private access to the beach and pool.
Other live auction items include a “Day at the Races” in Del Mar with Club House Admissions and Box Seats for Six; “Bary’s Bitch’n Kitchen,” dinner prepared in your home by Soccer Dad and “Chef Extraordinaire” Bary Bailey; a “Soccer Mom” package featuring spa treatments and other goodies; a basket of fine wines; tickets to Westside Story; and four hours of design time with Biddle and Barton Interiors.
The “Soctober-feast” begins with ice cold beer and warm pretzels, and tray-passed appetizers including mini potato pancakes and wild mushroom strudel. A Bavarian Buffet, catered by TK&A, features grilled Bratwurst and Kielbasa with sauerkraut and assorted mustards, and other German specialties.
“Soctoberfest is our most important fundraiser of the year,” says RSF Soccer Board Member Jeri Buchanan.” The funds we raise at this event will allow the club to enhance the soccer experience in our community by upgrading our equipment, fields and tournament.”
Rancho Santa Fe Youth Soccer, which serves more than 900 families, believes soccer is far more than a game. “This international sport promotes teamwork, builds character, and furthers an appreciation of world cultures, says the club’s Director of Coaching Malcolm Tovey. “And did I mention fun?” Tovey says the club pledges to provide the highest level of coaching, the finest fields and equipment and quality competitions for all levels of play.
Tickets to Soctoberfest are $125 each. For tickets, please contact Tammy Smith by phone at 619-787-5111 or 858-756-0231, or by email at
