The La Jolla Community Center welcomed more than 100 members and guests for a holiday party Dec. 10.

The event included hors d’oeuvres from Girard Gourmet as party-goers moved to the music of classical and flamenco guitarist James Clarkston.

“It is a beautiful Friday, another day in paradise. This is why we live here,” Clarkston said.

Guests also pored over silent auction and raffle items, all donated by local merchants, with proceeds benefiting the Community Center’s programs, events and services.

Vendors lined the hallways selling clothing, artworks and handmade wares. A portion of their sales went to LJCC as well.

LJCC Executive Director Nancy Walters thanked those in attendance and said, “Our future is bright, and that’s because of you.” ◆
