Rancho Bernardo has elected an Honorary Mayor since 1991. Every year, the RBBA holds an Honorary Mayor Contest, resulting in an Honorary Mayor and Deputy Honorary Mayor. Two or more candidates compete for the title and raise money for the RBBA. Each candidate holds one or two Special Events with fun activities, including a Silent Auction. Opportunity Tickets are also available at $5 a piece or 6 for $25. These tickets are entered into a Drawing for Three Grand Prizes worth several hundred dollars.
A portion of funds raised from the RBBA events goes towards RBBA Membership, Miss RB Scholarships, RB Community Foundation, RB Historical Society, Ed Brown Center, Spirit of the Fourth, and More.
