2019 Auction Gala - Shining Bright for 60 Years

Shining Bright for 60 years Rancho Romero 2019

March 2, 2019 at Roundhill Country Club


As we celebrate our 60th anniversary at Rancho Romero we want to thank you for your continued support. The Rancho Romero families are always so generous in giving to our school, and through the last 60 years, this continued support has been able to help keep the hope, dream and vision alive. We understand you are all incredibly busy, but if you're interested in helping with the school Auction in any way we'd love to have your help. Here is a link to a sign up genius page that provides different areas for donations where we can use support from our Rancho Families.  


Even if you only have limited time to make a donation inquiry or online donation request, that could be a big help as we put our auction together. Please find our Auction Item Donation Form here and also the “Dear Rancho Romero Families” Letter that will provide additional information on donations here. If you have a business or someone that is interested in making a cash donation, you will also find the “Sponsorship” form here as well as the letter “Dear Education Supporter" here.  


Funds raised will help provide classroom para-educators, reading specialists, technology specialist and materials, our librarian, art and music teachers and supplies as well as staff professional development and more. We hope you will help us by supporting this Gala Event on March 2, 2019.  Thanks so much.
