Last week, we joined our community in a fundraiser that raised $65,555 for the Ronald McDonald House Charities of San Diego. The 9th annual Boho Bash Tables for Tots event is a unique opportunity for local architectural and design firms to use their skillsets to design fun play spaces for kids. Participants are given an unfinished, child-sized table and two chairs, and asked to design an “adventure” for children to experience at the table. Later, the table and chair sets are sold, and all proceeds raised are given directly to the Ronald McDonald House.
SDLA sponsored our friends at Carrier Johnson + Culture, as they turned their table and chairs into a boho balloon! This hot air balloon was created with a wood frame, 2-inch nylon webbing woven for the basket, and a ball suspended over a metal frame. The kids had a blast planning their next hot air balloon adventure… and our team took home third place in the freestyle category!
Igroup and Swinerton Builders took first place in the freestyle category with the Boho Bunker, a ride that inspires musical and artistic creativity on the go. In second place, RNT Architects created Kaleidaway, a magical space illuminated by a kaleidoscope of lights.
In addition to selling all the tables and chairs, the night included a silent auction of prizes ranging from a weekend getaway to family portrait sessions and even a romantic hot air balloon ride. All the proceeds from the event help provide meals, lodging, and emotional support to families with children being treated for serious conditions at our local hospitals.
Our team members Maronee Rodenberger and Shawna Nunez had a great time attending the event with their kids (check out their awesome pictures above) and be sure to check out the different ways you can get involved with our local Ronald McDonald House here!
