RPTA Cruisin’ California Event at Santa Margarita Ranch

Santa Margarita Ranch Long Exposure

The Cal Poly RPTA Cruisin’ California Event at the beautiful Santa Margarita Ranch with amazing vendors + silent & live auctions…the event was undoubtedly a huge success!

The planning for the event took place over nearly a year; students donate their time to put together the event and they rely on generous contributions from many local vendors (see the list below). I’ve seen a live auction before with the same auctioneer and he doesn’t disappoint. The auction was filled with excitement and bidding wars.

Such a great event!
