2020 McGala Fundraiser Event
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville sincerely thanks you for the many generous ways you have supported McGala over the years. For 24 years, McGala has served as our largest fundraiser, however, this year we have made the heartbreaking decision to cancel McGala originally scheduled for May 30, 2020. Our decision was made with serious consideration for the health and safety of our supporters, attendees, volunteers and our staﬀ, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
Just like you, we were looking forward to being together with everyone during our McGala event, enjoying an elegant evening highlighting the importance of our mission and celebrating our donors. The need for our commitment to children and families has grown more apparent during this global pandemic and we are incorporating new and helpful ways to keep the whole family safe, happy and healthy during these challenging times. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing you at our 2021 McGala event.
If you have any questions, Development Director, Carol Harrison will gladly assist you. Carol can be reached at 904-807-4672 or firstname.lastname@example.org

About the Endowed $10,000 Event Grant Fund est. 2015 by Delores Barr Weaver
McGala is made possible through an Endowed $10,000 Event Grant Fund established in 2005 by Delores Barr Weaver.
Delores Barr Weaver established this Fund in 2015 to provide a $10,000 grant annually to support a premiere fundraising event in perpetuity at 20 local nonprofit organizations. This grant will provide a permanent source of income for organizations that Mrs. Weaver has generously supported for many years. It is her hope that other individuals will make similar permanent gifts to organizations that have been important to them. This Fund is one of a collection of Funds established by Delores Barr Weaver at The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida. Mrs. Weaver has an extraordinary legacy of philanthropy, and she has provided transformative support to dozens of nonprofit organizations that uplift, enlighten and advance our community. Her establishment of the Delores Barr Weaver Fund ($50 million) in 2012 was the largest gift in The Community Foundation’s history.
