SDA boys water polo benefit event to help fund pool rental


The San Dieguito High School Academy boys water polo team is holding its annual Parents’ Night Out fundraiser at Cardiff Beach Bar @ Tower 13 on Friday, Sept. 30, from 7 to 11 p.m.

A San Dieguito Academy Foundation sponsored event, the fundraiser will feature live music by Echophonic, a local cover band, starting at 8 p.m. Proceeds will help fund pool rental for the team.

Cardiff Beach Bar @ Tower 13 is supporting the team. In addition to providing the talented band, they are donating a percentage of food sales to the SDA boys water polo team. This, coupled with a suggested $15 donation at the door, should go a long way in helping the team.

Fundraising is essential for the water polo team. “None of the schools in our district have pools, so we all have to rent pool space,” said Tammy Dahl, SDA boy water polo team fundraising chair. “Pool rental is our largest expense. This is our first event at Tower 13. We are excited to partner with them and are grateful for their support.”

Echophonic will take the stage at 8 p.m. and rock the crowd until 11 p.m. They perform classic rock favorites with a touch of the blues, as well as a selection of newer favorites. Echophonic’s powerful and soulful female lead vocals mix with male lead and backup vocals, creating a unique sound and dynamic performance that’s sure to bring the crowd to their feet. Formed in 2010 by members of various local San Diego classic rock and blues bands, Echophonic regularly performs at events all around San Diego County.

“We are so excited to have such wonderful athletes and coaches at SDA, and appreciate an extraordinary group of supportive parents,” said Sharon Conger, a boys water polo team parent. “Our unique program not only builds strong athletes, but also encourages strong character development through community service.

“We really appreciate Tower 13’s generosity and are looking forward to a great night of food, music and fun with Echophonic.”

Valet parking is complimentary. Cardiff Beach Bar @ Tower 13 is located at 2633 South Coast Highway 101 in Cardiff. For more information, visit
