Let’s Party for the Powerhouse
Back in its late 1950s heyday, the Powerhouse Roaring 20s nightclub was a lively venue that celebrated the original facility’s role in the early decades of the 20th century as an adjunct to the star-studded Del Mar Hotel.
Four decades later, the Powerhouse Restoration Committee, precursor of the Friends of the Powerhouse, kicked off its initial fundraising to restore the vintage powerhouse with a Valentine Dance. This party atmosphere has continued throughout the years, with the FOP presenting fun, festive events, which are open to the public and raise funds for projects that enhance Del Mar’s exceptional quality of life.
In addition to the following events, the FOP raises money through naming opportunities and year-round contributions.
