On Saturday, July 12 the North County Athletic Association will present Vigilucci’s Beach Bocce World Championship XXXIV to benefit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Carlsbad (BGCC) at Dog Beach in Del Mar. The event will begin at 8 a.m. and continue until 5 p.m., or until the World Champions are crowned in each of the four divisions.

Almost 400 two-person teams will come out to play in the championship, and over 1,300 spectators are expected to attend. Costumes are encouraged. The organizers of the event predict about $90,000 net will be raised for BGCC. A small portion of this will be donated to the Friends of the Powerhouse and Beach.
