Ronald McDonald House Charities of Western Washington & Alaska hosts two signature fundraising events annually.
The RMHC Gala is the primary fundraiser for the Seattle Ronald McDonald House. Over the last ten years, the event has raised more than $8.6 million for RMHC. Proceeds from the event directly benefit operations at the Seattle Ronald McDonald House, enabling families with seriously ill children undergoing treatment at Seattle Children's to have a safe and home-like environment regardless of their financial situation.
Each year we are grateful to welcome 450+ guests for a heartwarming evening including exciting live and silent auctions, a delicious five-course meal and much lively bidding.
For more information on the 2015 Gala, set to take place on October 17, 2015, please contact Vanessa Kirk Briley at (206)838-0613.
The Hockey Challenge began in 1998, when hockey-playing Microsoft employees, with the help of the Seattle Thunderbirds, took an in-house rivalry public and decided to raise money for a good cause at the same time. In 2001, Microsoft made a $2 million pledge to support the construction of expanded Seattle Ronald McDonald House facilities, and vowed to hold the Hockey Challenge event each year to raise money until the pledge was met. The $2 million pledge was fulfilled in 2003, and the RMHC Hockey Challenge continues! Hockey Challenge in an RMHC and Seattle Thunderbirds managed event that has tremendous momentum and support from the local and national community and continues to raise much needed funds for RMHC of Western Washington & Alaska. Since inception, the event has raised more than $4.5 million.
The 2015 Hockey Challenge will take place on February 21, 2015. If you would like to get involved or learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Vanessa Kirk Briley at (206)838-0613.
