ROMP gala benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego

Contributions from the eighth annual ROMP gala and Hoehn Motors Mercedes-Benz Raffle raised more than $800,000 in net proceeds for Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego and will support services for families with critically ill or injured children being treated at a San Diego County hospital.

ROMP: Aloha!, held on Sept. 30 at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, celebrated the spirit of “ohana,” a term in Hawaiian culture meaning family. Together, philanthropists and supporters of San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House enjoyed the Pacific Islands-inspired evening. The charity provides a range of services – including lodging, meals and emotional support – to families with a critically ill or injured child in a local hospital, regardless of their ability to pay or their hometown.
