PHOTO BY JODY PINCHIN Letter from the Editor Recently renovated by Maria Barry of Le Dimora, this contemporary estate in the guard-gated community of Del Mar Country Club offers the epitome of modern design. Making the most of the crisp bright white backdrop, Barry mixes colors together with silver and sparkle to create an elegant and classic Christmas setting. The home is currently listed with Sean Barry of Barry Estates. 858.945.4314, sean@barryestates.com Photography by Vincent Knakal on the cover Andrea Naversen, Editor-at-Large Instagram: @ranchandcoast 'T is the season of giving! In our December issue, we offer our annual Charitable Giving Guide, highlighting the missions of 57 worthy nonprofits which could use our support, especially at this time of year, to care for those who struggle with poverty, hunger, homelessness, medical issues, and other challenges. Managing Editor Deanna Murphy offers five more reasons to give, including Resounding Joy, which offers music therapy that activates the brain's power to heal, and Frosted Faces, an animal rescue organization that finds loving homes for older cats and dogs. I interview Natalie Moores, the Rancho Santa Fe attorney credited with helping to bring Ukrainian refugees — wives, mothers, and children — into San Diego. While most have connected with family in other states, Moores has started a foundation thanks to a $1 million donation from a Rancho Santa Fe philanthropist to help refugee families here with food, housing, and transportation. I also sit down with philanthropists Jon and Dee Ammon, joint recipients of the "Nice Guy of the Year" award in 2021 for their community service. ey invited us to their festive Alpine home where it looks a lot like Christmas! Ron Donoho shares how "Little" Tommy Sablan, the former longtime producer for radio's Jeff & Jer, keeps the spirit of giving alive with his annual "Breaking and Entering Christmas," now on KUSI-TV. If you're wondering what to get family members this year, consider the gift of time spent together in family-friendly destinations. Travel Editor Elizabeth Hansen recommends some of her favorite places for a bit of multi-generational bonding including New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii, and Dubai. Happy Trails! In our "Merry & Bright" gift guide, we round up high- end jewelry, watches, perfume, and party-worthy looks to both give and receive. Food & Beverage Editor Brandon Hernández reviews Marisi, an Italian restaurant that brings the Amalfi Coast to La Jolla with a menu straight from the hearth, handmade pastas, fine wine, and cocktails. Finally, after a busy fall season, our Seen pages are filled with photos of fundraisers and fêtes, with more to come this month as the holidays kick into high gear. Wherever you spend the holidays, we at Ranch & Coast wish you good health, happiness, and lots of time with loved ones. We will see you next year! @ranchandcoast ranchandcoast.com 28 DECEMBER 2022 RANCH & COAST MAGAZINE
