You’re invited the Ronald McDonald House HomeburGala, an at-home cocktail party experience to remember.
Set your table and tune in with Gerry Sandusky, WBAL Sports Director and voice of the Baltimore Ravens, and RMHC Maryland President and CEO, and Sandy Pagnotti, RMHC Maryland President and CEO, as we host our second-annual HomeburGala. This year, our party box essentials will open a window into our House, helping you experience what makes RMH a home-away-from home for so many children and families. We’ll be bringing you a night of hope, inspiration, love, and sprinkles of fun right to the comfort of your home. There will be a live auction, words from our families plus some surprises – this is the gala event of the season!
Thursday, November 18th
7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
What is the HomeburGala?: While the COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us, pediatric illness has not disappeared. At the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Maryland, helping children and families in crisis is always our top priority. Each day at RMH we see families coming through our doors on the hardest days of their lives. Their child was diagnosed with cancer, their newborn baby is in the NICU, their teenager needs a surgery and the only doctor that can perform it is located in Baltimore, and the list goes on. Our mission at RMH is to make these unbearable days more bearable, and to provide a place of hope and compassion within the walls of our house. Your support makes all of this possible.
Although we had hoped that last year would mark the first (and last) HomeburGala online experience, out of an abundance of caution for our families, volunteers, and RMH supporters, we have decided to host a HomeburGala sequel event this year. You can expect the same festive party boxes filled with a new surprised and everything you need to host a fabulous event right in the comfort of your home, plus a live-stream program the evening of November 18 emceed by your RMH favorites: Sandy Pagnotti and Gerry Sandusky.
Party Boxes: We are offering two options of adult (21 years and older) party boxes this year. Our “Cheers!” cocktail-only box is perfect for an intimate party at home and “The Whole Shebang” covers just that: all your party needs from A to Z! Both box options will feature a specialty drink, delicious bites, and special RMH-décor filled with all our House love. Purchase your party boxes now!
Live Event: Join Gerry Sandusky, WBAL Sports Director and voice of the Baltimore Ravens, and Sandy Pagnotti, RMHC Maryland President and CEO as together they emcee our virtual, socially-distanced HomeburGala on Thursday, November 18 from 7:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Our live-stream program that evening will include a lineup of hope, inspiration, motivation and celebration. Even though we can’t all be together in one ballroom, we can still come together and celebrate the love and community that is the Ronald McDonald House.
Attire: Glammy or Jammy to attire – whatever feels best to you! Don’t forget to document your night by posting your party pictures to our social pages using the #homeburgala2021!
