ROMP Gala

Contributions from the 10th annual ROMP gala and Hoehn Motors Luxury Car Raffle raised $600,000 in net proceeds for Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego, which provides supportive services for families with a critically ill or injured child in a local hospital. ROMP Enchanted: The Magic of Hope at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar featured a cocktail hour with signature cocktails and a silent auction, musical entertainment by NRG Music & Productions, gourmet food cuisine, multiple enchanted acrobat performances, a live auction, and paddle raise. Mary and Hudson Drake served as honorary chairs of this year’s ROMP gala; the Drakes founded the inaugural ROMP in 2009.
