A host of exhilarating events takes place each year surrounding The Carmel Foundation.

We kick off the year in January with Philanthropic Foodies, an extraordinary food and wine event.

In Spring we hold The Gala, our largest fundraiser. Guests enjoy a wine reception and silent auction followed by a live auction and dinner at one of the peninsula's premier event venues.

In August, the streets of Carmel-by-the-Sea are filled with collector cars during CONCOURS ON THE AVENUE with the Foundation as the non-profit beneficiary.

In Fall, we hold our Annual Meeting where a state-of-the-union style presentation is made with a reception following.

Soon thereafter, the Foundation acknowledges our major donors, those that have included the Foundation in their estate plans, and those that are Pillars of the Foundation.

Thank you to the many donors, sponsors and attendees of the events that help support vibrant programming and services for seniors in our community.
