Rancho Santa Fe residents and philanthropists Hudson and Mary Drake are returning as honorary chairs for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego ROMP Gala. They founded the event in 2009, have remained actively involved since, and are proud to return for the event’s 10th anniversary.

The Drakes founded the gala after witnessing friends rely on the Ronald McDonald House, which provides housing and support to families with children in nearby hospitals. The facility houses 55 families every night.

This year’s gala is themed ROMP Enchanted: The Magic of Hope, and it will be held Oct. 12 at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar. The evening will include dining, dancing, entertainment, and the opportunity to make a difference for families in need. Learn more about the event and other ways to get involved at www.rmhcsd.org.
