REGION — Raising $620,000 for families in medical crisis, attendees of Le Cirque du ROMP enjoyed a concert by Steven Tyler and live and silent auctions while supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego on Sept. 20.

Event chairwoman and Rancho Santa Fe resident Jennifer Gramins, a longtime supporter of the Ronald McDonald House, brought the event to life, incorporating circus-themed elements and corporate and community philanthropists. Honorary chairs of the event were Rebecca and Jennifer Moores, who each contributed to the gala’s fundraising success.

“So many people came together to make tonight an overwhelming success — our honorary chairs Rebecca Moores and Jennifer Moores, the Hoehn family, the dedicated event committee, including former event chairs Mary Drake and Fernanda Whitworth. We would also like to say thank you to our headliner Steven Tyler.  He was extremely generous with his time and kind to every person that crossed his path,” said Jennifer Gramins. “This one night in La Jolla is providing hundreds of nights for families at the Ronald McDonald House. Ultimately, this is what the night is all about.”
