For 40 years, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama (RMHCA) has helped families with sick children find hope by providing them with shelter and support at the Birmingham Ronald McDonald House. Over the decades, the charity has added additional programs that together serve more than 5,000 families each year. The Heart of the House Gala celebrates and supports the RMHCA. Guests enjoyed a silent auction, a seated dinner, an energetic live auction, and a special story of impact from a guest family. Each year, this event benefits the organization’s annual program budget of $2.1 Million.
