What should I expect at this event?
This is one of the most exciting and important fundraising events for Rancho Romero, designed to raise over half of our RREF annual budget supporting Rancho’s paraprofessionals, reading intervention, math intervention + extensions, weekly art and music, library access, noontime sports…and much more.
This year’s Rancho Royale gala is expected to be an elegant, yearly celebration of our supporters of RREF by offering a fun opportunity to eat+drink+socialize, enjoy casino and raffle games, and participate in our fantastic live auction. You will be able to enjoy a sit-down dinner, and purchase special dessert treats and premium wine for your table. Music, more casino games and dancing will round out the night!
What is the dress code?
This year’s theme is “Rancho Royale.” Think glamor and elegance of a casino in old times of Monte Carlo or speakeasy, vintage glamor of the 1930s and 1940s.
