Red footwear rules at Ronald McDonald House’s ball

Tennis shoes, boots, pumps, sandals–the style didn’t matter as long as the shoes were red–graced the floor of the fourth annual Red Shoe Ball on April 25.

The event, held at the new Ronald McDonald House of San Diego, benefited families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. The event raised approximately $100,000, according to Kerrina Koltz, a spokeswoman for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego.

The wine and food-paired gala honored those who have helped Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego during the past year.

Corporations of the Year are Barnhart and North Island Credit Union. Philanthropist of the Year is Gary Bryant.

The Red Shoe Ball marked the first official event staged at the new Ronald McDonald House of San Diego. The organization will host a public grand opening on June 13.

Event sponsors included Alfonso’s of La Jolla, Benziger Winery, Meridian Vineyards, Chateau Vaux Sous Targe and Lagunitas Beer.
