Our annual McGala fundraising event, which draws more than 500 attendees, serves as our premier event to highlight the families served at the Ronald McDonald House as well as local families served at the Ronald McDonald Family Room located inside Wolfson Children’s Hospital. Help us celebrate our 30 year anniversary with our ‘Caribbean Nights’ theme that you won’t forget. Enjoy a Caribbean-inspired plated dinner, live entertainment, live and silent auctions, dancing and more throughout the evening.
Tickets are $250 per person and will go on sale late March, so check back soon!

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.
