The members of the Del Mar Unit of Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary are tipping their hats to the recent success of Hats Off to Children, held on July 9 at Cucina Enoteca in Del Mar.

Ladies gathered from near and far for Hats Off to Children, a luncheon hosted by Cucina Enoteca and a fashion show put on by TRE Boutique, at Flower Hill Promenade. Hats and fascinators designed by Jennifer Buckley were being snapped up to be worn at Opening Day of the Races to be held July 17.

Over 15 years ago, the 1st Annual Hats Off to Children was co-chaired by Andrea Naversen Wait, Karen Powell and Suzy Westphal at the former Scalini’s, located across from the polo fields. The theme for the fundraiser was centered on finding the perfect hat for Opening Day to the Races, with several hat designers at the event. High-profile ladies donated “Hats with a History,” fabulous, gently-worn designer hats which were sold at auction.

Cucina Enoteca, Cucina Urbana and Fish Public promise to continue to give back for the entire month of July through the Sip + Support program.  For every bottle of Cucina private label wine or carafe of Cucina tap wine sold, Cucina will donate $1 back to Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary.

Best of all, proceeds from the event benefit the “Highest and Most Urgent Needs” at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego, which means that donations help ensure that care matters over cost, and that children are not turned away because their parents cannot pay.

Rady Children’s Hospital Auxiliary is an all-volunteer organization whose mission is to support children through advocacy, community awareness, and fundraising.  Hats off to all of the patrons and vendors that continue to contribute, donate and support the lives of patients and children right here in our community.
