We are fortunate to have many supporters throughout the community. Volunteer groups, clubs, companies, groups of friends and organize all kinds of different events to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. Some of the annual community events are listed below.
Dinner with Friends
Carlos Sanguinetti and Matt Teeter established Dinner with Friends in 2012 as a unique casual fundraiser for San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House. Carlos was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2009. He has since made a full recovery, but the experience changed the way he and his friend Matt think about their contributions to the community. The event features a full dining experience, entertainment, live and silent auctions, and a wine grab.
Once a year participating motorcyclists ride to predetermined stops and draw a playing card. After completing the route, riders win prizes for the best and worst poker hands they’ve collected.
This fun ride includes a barbecue and lots of revving engines. Poke Ride is held a San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House each Summer.
