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.

Upcoming Events

The Annual Meeting, usually held in September, features a short program highlighting the Foundation's programs and services. Following the program, attendees enjoy entertainment and a wine reception in the courtyard.
Major donors, Pillars of the Foundation and members of our Legacy Society will be honored at the Major Donor Reception. This is the Foundation's opportunity to show appreciation for those that have provided substantial financial support over the past year.
Since its inception, The Carmel Foundation has had the honor being the non-profit beneficiary of CARMEL-BY-THE-SEA CONCOURS ON THE AVENUE. During this prestigious event, 18 blocks of downtown Carmel are filled with collector cars, celebrating the finest in automotive design and engineering. Please join use for the 14th Annual Concours on the Avenue Tuesday, August 10, 10:00am - 5:00pm.
Executive Chef Boris Ilabaca of La Playa Carmel and The Carmel Foundation cordially invite you to Philanthropic Foodies, an exquisite gourmet dinner paired with local fine wines from Bernardus Winery, Blair Wines, and Silvestri Vineyards to benefit services for seniors in our community. One does not need to be a Foundation member to attend this special event.
