The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

The Dana Hills High School football team will face El Toro at their annual Honor the Valor benefit football game and fundraising event, Friday, Nov. 6 at 7 p.m.
The team will host a pregame dinner and postgame presentation of game jerseys to the 70 veterans to be honored at this fourth annual event.
In its first three years, the event has raised more than $75,000 for local veterans’ organizations but without major sponsorship this year, its continuation is in jeopardy.
Donations, to help cover the price of the dinner, special camouflage jerseys sporting the names of the guest veterans and donations to local veterans groups, can be made to the 12th Man Club, online at www.gofundme.com by searching the words, “Dana Hills Charity Football Game.”
The 5th Marine Regiment from Camp Pendleton will conduct static displays and a flyover is scheduled to take place during the National Anthem.
Tickets are $10 at the stadium. Dana Hills High School, 33333 Golden Lantern, Dana Point, 949.496.6666, www.dhhs.net.
