San Diego Bayfair announced today that HomeStreet Bank will be the 2016 San Diego Bayfair title sponsor. Bayfair this year is September 16-18 on Mission Bay. HomeStreet’s sponsorship makes possible the family-friendly outdoor event that has become a San Diego tradition since 1964.
"We’re pleased that HomeStreet Bank has come on board as the title sponsor for this year’s San Diego Bayfair," said Bob Davies, Bayfair's race director. "Their sponsorship helps ensure the tradition of racing on Mission Bay continues. Families, including my own, have been coming together for generations to celebrate our community, enjoy good food and drink, and watch amazing boat racing. Visitors from around the country and the globe are set to join us to enjoy the fun-filled weekend."
HomeStreet Bank also sponsors a hydroplane boat in the H1 Unlimited series, which will be racing at Bayfair.
"We are thrilled to be the title sponsor of this year’s Bayfair," said Mark Mason, HomeStreet’s president & CEO. “We’re anxious to become more involved in the San Diego community, and this sponsorship provides a great venue for us to become more connected with the people of Mission Bay and the surrounding area. We are proud to have been a part of the vibrant San Diego community for a number of years with three home loan centers and now our two new bank branches in Mission Gorge and Kearny Mesa.”
