The 16th Annual Heart of the House Gala was presented by Protective Life Corporation, and featured dinner, drinks, a silent auction, and an exciting live auction. Generous sponsors and guests came together for a night of support, raising funds to benefit the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama (RMHCA).
Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Alabama (RMHCA) is a non-profit organization that envisions a community where families never confront their challenges alone, but instead find comfort, encouragement, and support in their quest for hope, healing, happiness, and growth. In 2017, the charity served approximately 4,000 children and their families through its three programs: the Ronald McDonald House® in Birmingham the Ronald McDonald Family Room® at DCH Regional Medical Center in Tuscaloosa and the Happy Wheels Hospitality Cart that serves clinic patients at Children's of Alabama. In 2018, the charity expanded its Ronald McDonald House to help up to 73 families each night and also added a new Ronald McDonald Family Room at UAB Women & Infants Center.
