The Gala Committee of The Rancho Santa Fe Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary recently announced its 2012 gala fundraising event — on March 3 at The Grand Del Mar — to the Rancho Santa Fe and greater San Diego communities. Join in an evening of fabulous cuisine, an amazing silent/live auction, the comedy of Dennis Miller, and dancing until midnight all in support of Rady Children’s Hospital, Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders!
“This year marks the Unit’s 16th annual event and we are proud to have had it recognized as one of San Diego’s premier social fundraising events. Since 1997, the Rancho Santa Fe Unit has been supporting the mission of Rady Children’s Hospital raising over $7.6 million to fund needed equipment, research, and direct care. Through the commitment and generosity of our sponsors and our attendees, the incomparable Dennis Miller, the tremendous team at the Grand Del Mar, and our devoted Gala committee members, this event promises to be both a night to remember and one which will signal our community’s commitment to supporting Rady Children’s Hospital,” said Cindy Leonard, Auxiliary Unit chairperson.
Proceeds from this event will benefit the Rady Children’s Hospital, Peckham Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders. The mortality rate of childhood cancer and blood disorders is greater than that of any other disease — more than that of asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. Cancer and life-threatening blood disorders such as hemophilia are indiscriminate, affecting children and their families across San Diego County in unfortunately increasing numbers.
Sponsorship opportunities still exist for community leaders looking to join the Rancho Santa Fe Unit in hosting this amazing evening.
For additional information on sponsorship opportunities, please contact Gala Chairperson Shaunna Kahn, at 760-420-1262.
