4th Annual Dinner with Friends is May 2nd!

It is almost here! Our biggest and most exciting fundraising event of the year–the Dinner with Friends in support of the Ronald McDonald House of San Diego!

This is the fourth time Carlos Sanguinetti and Matt Teeter have taken the helm, and and hopefully it will be the fourth time our fundraising goals are reached and surpassed. This year’s goal, you ask?


We know we can do it, with your help! You can either buy tickets or make a donation here!

We will have fabulous food and drinks from:

  • Busalacchi Restaurants
  • Stella Public House
  • Lightning Brewery
  • Southern Wine & Spirits
  • Golden Coast Mead
  • Clase Azul Tequila
  • COLDCOCK Whiskey
  • California Fruit Wine Co.
  • Popcakery custom cake jars

And our amazing silent auction features offerings like:

2 Night Stay at Palomar Mountain Cabin Where the Night Lights are Real–Enjoy the 180 degree view of San Diego County from the deck of a cabin on Palomar Mountain. The deck is perfect for stargazing, and the cabin is a short drive from the world famous Palomar Observatory. Nearby Palomar Mountain State Park offers hiking and fishing opportunities. Wake up to the sounds of birds singing and hummingbird wings whirring around the feeders. This cozy cabin sleeps ten, two in the master bedroom, two in a second bedroom, and four in a loft accessed by a pull down ladder.

4 One-Day Parkhopper passes to Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure Parks

VIP chargers training camp visit for 6 with pics with players after practice

And much, much more!

Won’t you join us? And if you are unable to attend, could you make a donation?

The Ronald McDonald House is a home-away-from-home for the families of critically ill or injured children from around the world. In June of 2009, Carlos was diagnosed with testicular cancer. He has since made a full recovery, but this life experience caused both Carlos and Matt to reevaluate their contributions to the community. They both shared the same vision of helping others in need. Carlos had heard good things about Ronald McDonald House Charities and in September of 2009 Carlos and his wife Shana organized our first volunteer event on behalf of the organization. Since then we have been committed to this amazing organization.

Please help us reach our goal and make this the most successsful Dinner with Friends ever!
