UCLA Athletics’ will be back in Orange County to host our annual “Bruins at the Beach” event on Saturday, June 4, 2016. This exclusive event, limited to just 150 guests, is an opportunity for passionate UCLA alumni, friends and fans to spend an elegant intimate evening in Orange County with UCLA Director of Athletics Dan Guerrero, head coaches including Jim Mora, Steve Alford and Cori Close, and distinguished UCLA Legends.
The evening will take place on the beautiful property of The Strand at The Headlands in Dana Point, California, tucked away on the shoreline just steps from pristine Strand Beach. The stunning sunset views up and down the California coast will bring the evening to a start, beginning with a breathtaking sunset champagne toast. Following the toast enjoy the multi-level specialty bars, featuring artisan cocktails, gourmet food stations and lavish dessert stations.
You won’t want to miss out on our featured music and the opportunity to bid on exclusive Silent Auction items that have never before been seen. Be sure to find conversation with your fellow guests and do not leave without getting your picture taken with our Bruin Legends and Head Coaches.
The total number of attendees is limited as to create an intimate and warm atmosphere, with the opportunity to eat, drink and toast to the Bruins with our Head Coaches and Legends of Bruin lore. All proceeds from the evening will benefit UCLA Athletics through the Wooden Athletic Fund and its efforts to raise support for scholarships and resources for UCLA’s 700 student-athletes.
We look forward to toasting you June 4th for our “Bruins at the Beach".
