Delicias Restaurant in Rancho Santa Fe hosted the San Diego Rescue Mission (SDRM) on Sept. 28 to celebrate the mission’s 55th anniversary.

In recognition of this milestone, SDRM invited 55 of its most-cherished supporters to honor their continued support. The mission assures a safe-haven, as well as restorative care and rehabilitation services to the homeless, addicted, abused, and poor in San Diego.

Delicias owner Owen Perry dedicated his establishment for the event, and his chefs and waiters donated their time. Mission CEO Herb Johnson said, “This gracious gift … was a special time to pay homage to our supporters. We asked that they keep their wallets zipped and simply enjoy the camaraderie of the evening. Still, somehow, we raised more than $14,000 for SDRM, a true demonstration of the commitment of these individuals to the plight of the homeless in our community and the strength of our mission to bring hope.”
