Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego recently welcomed several new board of trustees members to guide the organization on its mission to provide supportive services, including food and lodging, to families with a critically ill or injured child being treated at a local hospital.
“The Ronald McDonald House depends on hundreds of volunteers to serve thousands of meals each week and keep the 47-bedroom facility running smoothly, and it relies on a handful of dedicated individuals to provide guidance as members of the board of trustees,” said Doug Dawson, chair of the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego board of trustees. “Our board has recently expanded and we’re delighted to have visionary philanthropists and unstoppable business minds join the team.”
Among the new trustees is RSF resident Susan Hoehn, a philanthropist and owner of Hoehn Motors, who has been highly involved with San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House for years, including serving on the ROMP fundraising gala event committees for three years and donating luxury cars for raffles benefiting the charity. Hoehn’s philanthropic network and her knowledge of the San Diego charitable community’s needs and motivations will help the Ronald McDonald House remain top of mind among key supporters, ultimately helping the 12,500 family members who rely on the Ronald McDonald House each year for food, lodging and other supportive services.
“Each member of our board of trustees dedicates their time, talent and resources to our House, enabling us to focus on how we may best serve the families who need us,” said Chuck Day, president and CEO of Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. “This group of individuals has a range of knowledge and experience to bring to the table and we look forward to learning from them for years to come.”
