Foundation Sponsored Fundraising Events
The Rancho Los Amigos Foundation was established in 1983 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that provides financial support to the Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center through fundraising activities that help to sustain Rancho's research, education, equipment, and outpatient programs. Each year, the Foundation hosts our Annual Amistad Gala, which is our largest fundraiser of the year! Your participation in events such as this, have a lasting and deep impact on the work that Rancho does with our patients to help them return to their family, school, job, and most importantly an independent quality of life.

Therapeutic Patient Events
Brain Injury Fashion Show
This very special "fashion show" is a therapeutic event for Rancho Los Amigos' patients who have overcome significant injuries and disabilities from traumatic brain injuries. It is one of Rancho’s most inspiring, emotional, and memorable events. For many patients, the very notion of getting dressed, walking, talking, and being mobile was little more than a dream. They have gone through months and years of intensive rehabilitation to get to this point in their life. This fashion show celebrates their journey in regaining pride in themselves and their appearance and gives them the opportunity to apply learned skills from their therapy sessions onto the runway. For more information regarding the Patient Fashion Show, please contact the Recreation Therapy Department at (562) 385-6323.
Art of Rancho Exhibition
The Rancho Los Amigos Foundation's Annual Art of Rancho Exhibition, features the artwork of more than 50-65 Rancho artists! Many of these patients find a new meaning of life by participating in the Art of Rancho program. The date for the next upcoming event is still to be determined, keep checking back for more updates.
