Over the past 17 Years, the Rancho Santa Fe Auxiliary Unit raised over 9.7million dollars for Rady Children’s Hospital. This would not have been possible without the help of our sponsors, supporters and countless volunteers. You are all an integral part of our fundraising effort! This year, we are dedicating our annual fundraising Gala, “Broadway Nights”, to the Emergency Department, (ED). Funds raise will complete the ED’s “Resuscitation Room Project” for the Sam S. and Rose Stein Emergency Care Center.

Our Gala relies upon the commitment and generosity of sponsorship from both returning and new sponsors in our community. Through the commitment of our sponsors, the unrivaled entertainment of Imagination Entertainment, the fabulous team at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar, and our devoted Gala committee members and Unit, this event promises to be both a night to remember and one which will signal our community’s commitment to supporting Rady Children’s Hospital.

Please join us in delivering a memorable evening by participating as a sponsor.

The Rady Children’s “Resuscitation Room Project” will transform emergency healthcare education at Rady Children’s Hospital and advance patient care through the availability and upgrading of high-tech equipment for: simulation training, rapid diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring of critically ill children. Rady Children’s Emergency Care Center requests consideration of the following ‘Giving’ options which will meet the ED’s most urgent needs: specialized equipment, upgraded technology and space renovation.

Resuscitation is the central function of modern emergency departments and requires the availability and upgrading of high-tech equipment for rapid diagnosis, treatment and monitoring. Care is provided in specialized resuscitation bays that are carefully designed to optimize available space and have specially-designed beds, imaging capabilities, adequate lighting and storage for medical supplies, communication and monitoring technology, and resuscitation equipment.

In addition to the creation of well-designed and properly outfitted space, it is necessary that the care team receives training. Simulation training enables individuals to practice skills in realistic situations before taking care of patients, allowing all those being trained to become better, more competent, and more compassionate healthcare providers. Rady Children’s Emergency Care Center leadership envisions that through the use of simulation training, emergency care team members will learn and master skills in a safe environment without risk to real patients.

Total Funding Required to Complete the ED’s “Resuscitation Room Project”: $1,000,000


The three components available for funding are each represented by a phase of resuscitation: (a) Pre-resuscitation: funds will help prepare and train our medical teams to expertly and efficiently treat medically unstable children who come to our Emergency Care Center; (b) Resuscitation: funds will allow us to treat medically unstable children after arrival in our Emergency Care Center; (c) Post-resuscitation: funds will support families of sick children and the staff that care for them, while advancing the knowledge of how to save children’s lives. The first two options represent distinct components of the program, with the final option fully funding the complete “Resuscitation Room Project”

FUNDED BY 2014 GALA – Component I: Pre-resuscitation – Cost, $250,000


Simulation Training Program: Funds will be used to create a robust simulation program that utilizes            replicated real-life situations to prepare our physician-nurse teams to treat medically unstable children. The program will use simulation equipment, including high-fidelity resuscitation mannequins, in mock scenarios to enhance the proficiency of the entire medical team in treating children with acute life-threatening illnesses.

STARTED BY 2014 GALA – Component II: Resuscitation – Cost, $500,000


FUNDED FIRST $720,000 WITH 2014-2015 GALAS


Resuscitation Room: Funds will be used to create a state-of-the-art resuscitation bay that is fully equipped with proper resuscitation beds, adequate lighting, anti-slip floors, ultrasound, rapid IV infusion sets, warmers, digital x-ray viewing equipment, invasive and non-invasive breathing equipment, invasive and non-invasive equipment for monitoring vital signs (heart rate, blood pressure, etc.), wireless communication equipment, and real-time recording devices for use in quality improvement.


Component III: Post-Resuscitation-Cost $250,000


Post-Resuscitation: Funding will allow Rady Children’s to fully renovate and upgrade the ED to a state-of-of the-art facility, including all aspects of patient and family care. The final implementation will focus on three main goals: 1) comfort and privacy for families, (parents, guardians, and siblings), whose medically unstable children are undergoing life-preserving interventions in the Emergency Care Center (i.e. a private consultation room for families waiting for updates), 2) quality-improvement efforts harnessing lessons learned from past experiences, and 3) scientific research to enhance life-saving treatments in the Emergency Care Center, as well as to evaluate the impact of resuscitation efforts on the well-being of patients, families and medical staff who treat them.
