About our Signature ROMP Gala
ROMP is an inspired, fun-filled annual gala that benefits a very serious cause – keeping families close to their hospitalized child. Since its founding in 2010, ROMP has grown into one of San Diego’s premier events.
ROMP features gourmet dining, upbeat entertainment and dancing in a festive, upscale atmosphere. ROMP sponsorship and table hosting is an outstanding way to make a powerful impact for one of our city’s most beloved causes – San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House.
This year, prepare to be dazzled and delighted by an island-inspired atmosphere, exciting entertainment, and delectable cuisine. The elegant blend of Polynesian culture combined with ROMP’s signature playful feel will immerse you in the spirit of ROMP: Aloha.

Frequently Asked Questions:
What is the theme of ROMP 2017?
At this year’s ROMP, we would like to welcome you to the Ronald McDonald House ‘Ohana (family), with an elegant evening celebrating a blend of Polynesian culture and the spirit of Aloha. Every day 8 to 10 percent of our suites are occupied by Hawaiian families. While these families are far from home, they receive the care, support, and comfort from the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego during their time of need. At ROMP: Aloha, we will come together to support these families and all of the 15,000 family members who use our services annually, because ‘ohana (family) is everything when caring for a hospitalized child.
