Pasadena Ronald McDonald House Shine Gala 2018

Ronald McDonald House’

14th Annual Shine Gala

THE REASON   Over 360 of Pasadena’s philanthropically-minded gathered at the 14th Annual Shine Gala, hosted by and benefiting the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House (PRMH) on Saturday, November 3rd at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena.

THE REVELERS   The festivities were held to honor Tim Estes of Fiesta Parade Floats with support from the Tournament of Roses 2019 Royal Court who greeted guests and addressed the crowd during the program, the Riboli Family of San Antonio Winery who donated the wine for the festivities with veteran news anchor, Jeff Michael who emceed the program all lead by gala chair Ann Moore.

THE RECAP  Highlights from the live auction were a 7-day Cruise for two guests on the Royal Princess of Princess Cruises, a 7-night stay in luxurious accommodations on the big island of Hawaii and two adorable Labrador puppies. The more than $380,000 raised at this year’s Gala will help fund 4,550 room nights. Since first opening its doors in December 2004, PRMH has served more than 21,900 children and their families in their time of need. The 12-room House is built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on the health of their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will lay their head at night.

“It was incredible to see our greater Pasadena community turn out — our largest crowd yet, by far – to support our mission of keeping families close during their toughest times,” said Elizabeth Dever, event host and executive director, PRMH. “We could not do this important work without the help from our donors, hospital partners, volunteers and the generosity from so many supporters in the community.”

Now in its 14th year, PRMH provides comfort, care and a “home-away-from-home” to families with critically ill children, keeping them close to their family, doctors and medical care in their time of need. No family is ever turned away because of an inability to pay. More information is available at
