Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®) of Greater Las Vegas hosted their 21 Years & Counting Gala at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas. The Gala featured a James Bond Casino Royale theme with attendees playing blackjack and poker prior to a gourmet meal by Executive Chef Michael Goodman. Attendees dressed in their best James Bond attire to support RMHC’s mission of keeping families together when they need it most.
With the support of 380 attendees and folks that donated from home, more than $342,000 was raised for RMHC families. RMHC honored longtime supporter, MGM Resorts Foundation and gave the 2019 House Hero award to Katlyn’s Dream, a local nonprofit that supports RMHC and families with children in the hospital in memory of their daughter, Katlyn. A past family from RMHC, from the Hualapai Tribe in Arizona, shared how RMHC made a positive impact in their lives while their little one underwent heart surgery at a local hospital. A special thank you goes to Maria Silva with Fox5 News for emceeing this elegant evening.
