Carmel Valley Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary to host Sounds of Hope benefit

Get ready to swing and sing to the sounds of the ’60s with Dean, Frank and Sammy in a Vegas-style tribute to the “Rat Pack.” The historic Ballroom at The Prado in Balboa Park will be transformed into a tres chic and absolutely “Mad” nightclub scene featuring music by The Dean-O-Holics. Presented by Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary’s Carmel Valley Unit, this year’s fabulously fun event will be held on Friday, March 25, and will benefit the Hospital’s Autism Discovery Institute.

As always, the level of fun is sure to be exceptional with premium cocktails, dancing, dinner, a live auction and concert. According to event co-chairs Marilyn Nolen and Romie Martin, the group’s goal is to ensure a truly memorable experience that combines philanthropy and fun for all in attendance. In light of the continuing economic downturn, tickets, which are available by invitation only, are only $175 per guest this year. Tables of 10 with reserved seating are $2,500. For an invitation, please visit or call 858.461-0104.

The theme for the sixth annual Sounds of Hope for Children event was inspired by the popular AMC program “Mad Men” and the music of that era. Guests are encouraged to dress in early ’60s cocktail attire.

Autism affects 1 in 110 children in this country and the incidence of diagnoses continues to grow annually. Rady Children’s Hospital’s Autism Discovery Institute is the beneficiary of this year’s event and is on the forefront of intervention, treatment, and research in autism spectrum disorders. The Autism Discovery Institute’s mission is to “create a research center that translates the latest discoveries into the best possible clinical care” for children with autism spectrum disorders and their families.
