New platinum sponsor of RMHC WA Gala Ball

Barbagallo Group is announced as new Platinum Sponsor of Ronald McDonald House Gala Ball

Ronald McDonald House Charities WA (RMHC WA) is pleased to announce Barbagallo as the new RMHC WA Gala Ball Platinum Sponsor.

Barbagallo and RMHC WA are connected in their shared understanding of the importance of family. Founded in 1967 by brothers Alf and Tony Barbagallo, the family-owned business has been a well-respected automotive operation for over half a century.

As a long-term supporter of WA’s home away from home, Barbagallo has a direct impact on keeping WA families with seriously ill children close together during difficult times.

RMHC WA Gala Ball Chair, Carmel Leaker, says the support by Barbagallo for the Gala Ball is a celebration between two organisations that share the value of family.

“We are excited that Barbagallo has chosen to join us as a Platinum Sponsor for the 2021 Gala Ball. By joining us, Barbagallo is helping to ensure this valued WA service continues to deliver crucial family-centred care.”

After being involved in the RMHC for a number of years, Barbagallo are thrilled to have the opportunity to be the Platinum Sponsor of the RMHC WA Gala Ball in 2021.

Barbagallo Dealer Principal, Vince Barbagallo, said “We understand the importance of the service provided by RMHC WA for WA families. It is with great pleasure and pride that we join the RMHC WA Gala Ball as a Platinum Sponsor in 2021. We look forward to continuing our support of WA’s home away from home and making an impact on the lives of Western Australian families.”

The much-loved RMHC WA Gala Ball is crucial in raising funds for WA’s sick kids and their families. In 2020, due to COVID-19 restrictions, the event was cancelled, which significantly impacted the fundraising revenue for RMHC WA.

The RMHC WA Gala Ball returns with anticipation in 2021 and will be held on November 13.  This year, the theme is ‘Brave’ and takes its inspiration from the brave WA children that are fighting big battles at the House every day.

The partnership between Barbagallo and RMHC WA will ensure resilient Western Australian families with seriously ill children stay connected to the medical care they require.
