While Bastille Day is traditionally a French holiday remembering the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, an event that sparked the French Revolution, Southern Caregiver Resource Center (SCRC) hosts its annual Bastille Day Celebration to highlight and honor the devotion and selflessness of family caregivers in San Diego County. Guests were invited to enjoy upscale wine, cuisine, live entertainment and a silent auction at the 22nd Annual Bastille Day Fundraiser on July 12 at the Fairbanks Ranch Clubhouse. One-hundred percent of event proceeds will go toward meeting the direct service needs of family caregivers in San Diego.
Michel Malécot, owner of The French Gourmet, catered the event. In addition to wine and food pairings at Bastille Day, guests enjoyed live, musical entertainment from Emmy Award winner and Grammy-nominated artist Allan Phillips and Friends. Visit www.caregivercenter.org. Photos by Jon Clark.
