Rady Children's Hospital Presents: Circus Nights Gala

The 18th Annual Gala Benefiting the Rady Children's Hospital by their Rancho Santa Fe Auxiliary Unit

Last year's Circus Nights Gala

Don't miss a night of topsy-turvy fun as the Rancho Santa Fe Unit of Rady Children's Hospital Auxiliary hosts the Circus Nights Gala, an exclusive charity event benefiting the Sam S. and Rose Stein Emergency Care Center. The event starts at  6 p.m. on January 31, at The Grand Del Mar in San Diego, with a “circus nights” theme featuring live entertainment by the performers of iL CIRCo. Guests will have the opportunity to participate in a live and silent auction; delicious dinner, snacks, and desserts; beer, wine and spirits and a full night of socializing and dancing. This year's event marks the 18th, annual gala.

The Rancho Santa Fe Unit of Rady Children's Hospital Auxiliary is a nonprofit organization that works with Rady Children's Hospital to fundraise and advocate for children's health care. Over the past sixteen years, the group has organized numerous fundraisers, including craft fairs, horse shows, concerts, and the annual gala, to benefit the hospital. Their current project, known as the “Resuscitation Room Project,” aims to develop a much-needed resuscitation bay for the hospital's Emergency Care Center. Last year, they raised enough funds to implement a simulation training program, which is intended to strengthen the treatment abilities of the Emergency Care Center medical team.
