2022 McGala Fundraiser Event

Nearly 400 supporters came together to raise a record setting $600,000 to support Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville’s Gala fundraising event, presented proudly by Black Knight, Vystar Credit Union, and an Anonymous Donor! McGala 2022 ‘Footloose Rewind’ – in celebration of the iconic 1980’s, was held Saturday, May 7, 2022, at Sawgrass Marriott Resort.

Everybody cut loose as we celebrate the era of the 80’s! With its iconic fashion trends, classic music ballads and unforgettable pop culture, the 80’s is the perfect theme for this year’s McGala fundraiser event! Following a two-year hiatus, we are excited to enjoy an incredible evening of food, cocktails, music, live and silent auctions, dancing and fundraising to support the mission of Ronald McDonald House Charities of Jacksonville

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.
