HeART of Giving Gala
16th Annual HeART of Giving Gala
Raises More than $340,000 for Families
Who Depend on the Ronald McDonald House
Las Vegas, NV (November 4th, 2014) – If you’ve ever planned a large live event, then you know anything goes! But every once in a while, the stars align and the magic happens. That was the case with our 2014 HeART of Giving Rock “n” Roll Gala. The October 18th event, held at the Keep Memory Alive Events Center, honored Lotus Broadcasting and Vice President and General Manager Tony Bonnici.
The evening kicked off with cocktails, appetizers, and the electric cello duo of Bridge who played live classic rock music in the outdoor garden. That was followed by a live indoor concert by The Parametrics, dinner by the gourmet chefs of Cut and Taste, and a live auction. The entire evening had a fantastic vibe! With 350 people attending, the event raised over $350,000 for our Ronald McDonald House families. Congratulations to the RMHC Board and Staff for an amazing night, and our sincerest thanks to all who supported the evening’s tremendous success.
