THE PENINSULA SCENE:

San Diego’s only National Park held its annual “Cabrillo Under the Stars” fundraiser, May 18 with the aim of growing its science education programs to “Help Cabrillo Reach a Kid.” Guests were treated to outstanding nighttime views of San Diego from the park’s Visitor Center, along with food tastes from local eateries and spirits from Fallbrook , Granite Lion Cellars and Westfall wineries. The craft beer came from Bay City Brewing. New this year was a live, online auction.

Membership in the Cabrillo National Monument Foundation (from $40 annually) is available at cnmf.org or by calling (619) 222-4747.
