Every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the parking lot at Mission Bay High School comes alive with a vibrant lineup of fresh seasonal produce, the mouthwatering aroma of international dishes from mobile restaurateurs, and lively tunes by local musicians adding a little pep in the steps of passersby. Neighbors, chefs and gourmands alike stroll amid a colorful array of freshly-cut flowers and gourmet fare each week at the Seaside Farmers Market to check out the latest artisan crafts, sample exotic spices and scrumptious snacks, and enjoy the camaraderie of fellow beach locals, visitors and merchants.
With its abundance of offerings, the weekly Seaside Farmers Market never fails to excite. This month, DonorNation is teaming up with organizers of the dynamic market to offer a few unique opportunities to help raise money for local San Diego schools as well.
If you’re a regular farmers market attendee, why not make the purchases you were already planning to make AND raise money for your local school at the same time? Beach Bucks vouchers are the way to do just that. Not only can you use Beach Bucks vouchers like cash at the Seaside Farmers Market, but 15% of your voucher price is donated directly to the neighborhood school of your choice, including Kate Sessions Elementary, Crown Point Music Academy, Pacific Beach Middle School, Barnard Asian-Pacific Language Academy, or Mission Bay High School. Raising money for your local school has never been so easy!
Here’s how it works:
1. Visit http://bit.ly/beachbucks
2. Click “Buy Now” on the dollar amount you wish to purchase. (Beach Bucks are sold in increments of $20 up to $80)
3. Bring your voucher to the information booth at the Seaside Farmers Market to trade in for your Beach Bucks.
Beach Bucks can be used just like cash at any booth in the market. If you aren’t already using Beach Bucks vouchers, you are leaving money behind that could be donated to your favorite school. Don’t miss out on such an easy opportunity to support local schools while you shop!
The Seaside Farmers Market takes place every Saturday in the Mission Bay High School parking lot, located at 2475 Grand Ave., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. All of the proceeds from booth sales benefit Mission Bay High School.
DonorNation’s Beach Bucks vouchers benefit any Pacific Beach school of the buyer’s choice. If you feel good about giving back to local farmers and artisans in your community, you’ll feel like a rock star when you give back to your neighborhood school at the same time!
