The 11th annual Taste at the Cove, a fundraising auction and fashion show to benefit San Diego Sports Medicine Foundation, was held Sept. 6 at Scripps Park at La Jolla Cove. SDSMF helps provide a medical safety net for injured youth with limited financial means in order to return them back to health, life and sports.

In honor of the 2012 Olympic Games, the event recognized many San Diego Olympians and professional athletes. Among the Olympic guests were gymnastics gold medalist Kerry Strug, track & field gold medalist Monique Henderson, silver medal cyclist Sarah Hammer, and beach volleyball silver medalist, Mike Dodd. Many professional athletes, including NFL Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk and several San Diego Chargers players, were in attendance.

The event also honored Sue Lalicker, who has been providing care for San Diego student athletes for more than 30 years. Taste at the Cove featured food samples from 36 area restaurants, hosted bars, a swimwear fashion show by Sauvage, opportunity drawings, and silent and live auctions.
