Join us for our 2019 McGala !
Presented by Joe & Nan Ferrara
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville will host our signature McGala fundraising event presented by Joe and Nan Ferrara on Saturday, May 18, 2019 6pm-11pm at the Sawgrass Marriott Resort & Spa in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida. This year’s McGala theme is ‘The Supper Club’ – drawing from the prestigious and swanky NYC Stork Club. Our annual McGala fundraiser event, serves as one of Jacksonville’s premier gala events, drawing a crowd of over 500 attendees each year. McGala also serves as the largest fundraiser event for Ronald McDonald House of Jacksonville and highlights our mission and the families we serve each year, who are seeking medical care for their children at local healthcare facilities. McGala attendees can expect to enjoy a night of FOOD, COCKTAILS & JAZZ during the cocktail hour, a wine pull, live and silent auctions, and The Chris Thomas Band playing big band hits of the era.
McGala is made possible through an Endowed $10,000 Event Grant Fund established in 2005 by Delores Barr Weaver.
Tickets for McGala start at $300 per person and will go on sale late March. For more information about McGala, please call 904-807-8669 or call firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the Endowed $10,000 Event Grant Fund est. 2015 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.
