2016 Rock the House Gala raises $298,000 for families who depend on the Ronald McDonald House

Las Vegas, NV, October 21, 2016– Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas (RMHC) Rocked the House at our 18th Annual Gala. It was held on October 15th at the Keep Memory Alive Event Center. This rock-n-roll inspired night had a little mix of everything to make the event spectacular! For the first time in RMHC Las Vegas history, the Greater Las Vegas McDonald’s Operators Association not only presented the Gala, but they were also the Honoree. What a unique twist they put on the night!

The evening kicked off with cocktails, appetizers, and the Chandler Judkins Quartet in the outdoor garden. That was followed by live indoor entertainment by Reckless In Vegas, gourmet dinner by Master Chef Gustav E. Mauler, and a live auction. The portion of the night that had everyone on the edge of their seats was our one-of-a-kind “Dancing Under the Arches” competition. Five local McDonald’s owner-operators rehearsed for weeks to perform their own dance during the evening, with all of the proceeds from the votes going directly to the families of RMHC. With the night sold out, the event raised over $295,000. Congratulations to the RMHC board and staff for an amazing night, and our sincerest thanks to all who supported the evening’s tremendous success.
