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.
Tables for Tots
Organized by G/M Business Interiors, this event brings the talent of the architectural and design community together with the generosity of local businesses and individuals to support San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House. Each design team is given an unfinished child’s table and two chairs to create an “adventure” for children. These tables are then auctioned, with proceeds benefiting family care at our House.
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.
