Rancho Santa Fe House Big Draw for Ronald McDonald House Raffle


The famous Ronald McDonald House charity chose a home in Rancho Santa Fe this year for their Dream House Raffle. This is the 11th year that the raffle has taken place, and its purpose is to help support children and the families of children.

The dream house for this year in Rancho Santa Fe has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It’s custom-built and the house is on top of a ridge that has an impressive scenic view of mountains going out into the ocean for over 2.4 acres.

The houses are always donated by the original homeowners according to Chuck Day, who is the CEO of the San Diego chapter of the charity. There are actually many multiple prizes in the charity, around 1300, and because of the limited numbers of people entering, the chances of winning are around 1 in 50.

It’s not just houses either, it’s also cars like an Audi or a Mercedes-Benz, and even vacations to exotic locations like Hawaii or Apple computers are potential prizes.

The Grand Prize is the Rancho Santa Fe house for a reason though, since anyone who wins the raffle can decide that they want 2.1 million dollars instead, provided that enough people enter the raffle.

In the event that someone takes the cash instead of the home, the owner will receive the home back again. Homes such as the one in Rancho Santa Fe are usually big draws, since last year’s event raised more than $3 million for charity and was one of the most successful events that Ronald McDonald House had ever done.
