Save the date for the upcoming Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) Tasmanian Gala Ball! The Ball aims to raise vital funds for the charity, helping to keep families close in times of need.

This annual black tie event, now in its 23rd year, will host over 500 guests for a night of fine food, wine and headline entertainment. Peppered with silent and live auctions and money ’can’ buy experiences, all funds raised on the night go directly to the Ronald McDonald House Hobart and the Ronald McDonald Learning Program in Tasmania.

By providing a home away from home, Ronald McDonald Houses allow families to stay close to their sick children while they receive hospital treatment. Ronald McDonald House Hobart is at capacity almost every night. This House in 2017 alone provided 2,630 nights of accommodation to families with a seriously ill child, meaning resources at the Houses are stretched.

As well as the House, 2017 saw Ronald McDonald House Charities support children in Tasmania through the Learning Program. The Program enable children with serious illness and their siblings who would otherwise miss out on education, to continue or catch up with schooling.

It’s a night not to be missed! For more information, please contact tasrmhcball@gmail.com
