Gala

The Evening

The Spirit of Children Gala is a beautiful event featuring a cocktail reception, live entertainment, open bar, gourmet dinner, and dancing, along with spectacular silent and live auctions! The Gala allows us to celebrate our mission and raise funds to help ease the burdens of families with seriously ill or injured children.

Please join us at the Grand America Hotel on Saturday, April 28, 2018 for Morocco: Kaleidoscope of Lights. Step inside an exotic world of mystery and glamour, complete with the desert breezes, jeweled bazaars, and flickering lanterns of the ancient Near East. Beginning at 5:30 pm you and your guests will enjoy a festive cocktail reception, followed by themed entertainment and dinner with a specially-tailored menu; all while in company with high-level executives and community leaders that are embracing the mission close to our hearts – keeping families together and stronger when it matters most. Join us for one of Salt Lake City’s top five fundraising events! This is a celebration you won’t want to miss.

  • 300-400 auction items
  • Over 1000 guests
  • Unique and experiential live auction packages

The Goal

To meet the needs of the growing number of families traveling to Salt Lake City to receive pediatric medical treatment RMHC offers two core programs: the Ronald McDonald House, featuring 72 guest rooms as well as child-centered, family gathering spaces; and the Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, which provide respite spaces at Primary Children’s Hospital. Thanks to the generosity of many extraordinary businesses, organizations, and individuals, we were able to raise over $1 million in 2017. This year we hope to surpass that amount to help provide over 26,000 room nights for families in need.
