ROMP Gala benefits San Diego Ronald McDonald House


Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego’s annual ROMP Gala held a fun-filled, 1980s “House Party” at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar Oct. 29 with a focus on a serious cause – keeping families together.

The annual gala featured musical entertainment, gourmet food and a live auction to raise funds for San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House. The charity helps keep families close to one another and the care they need while their child is undergoing treatment at local hospitals for serious, often life-threatening conditions. Services and amenities include meals, overnight rooms, nap rooms, laundry facilities, child care programs and more to alleviate stress and financial burden, while keeping families close to their loved ones.
