Annual Under the Moonlight Gala

Annual Under the Moonlight Gala

Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD) will host the “Under the Moonlight” Gala presented by LiquidAgents at The Pavilion at the Belo Mansion on Saturday, April 7 from 6:30 p.m. to midnight. The honorary chairs for this year’s benefit are Susan and David Rosenberg, while Christine Cook and Cecilie Holman are co-chairing.

“Under the Moonlight – Southern Style will kick off our spring season with a festive and fun celebration of southern hospitality, cuisine and libations,” said Jill Cumnock, Chief Executive Officer of RMHD. “It’s one of my favorite nights of the year as so many of our supporters come together to celebrate the love we have for all of our RMHD families.”

The historic Belo Mansion’s elegant Pavilion will serve as the backdrop for the party with its 17-foot barrel vault ceiling, and alabaster chandeliers and sconces. The band The After Party will play as guests cavort in cocktail attire and dancing shoes enjoying the evening’s signature cocktail, the Moonlight Mule. The menu will feature southern flavors like white cheddar cheese grits, beef tenderloin with Cajun shrimp, and a delectable family-recipe bread putting. Entertainment will include both magician James Munton, who once charmed George W. Bush at The White House, plus a live auction featuring trips to the Kentucky Derby, Aspen, Vermont and the Four Seasons Punta Mita; a luxury suite at a Rangers game; and an LA getaway to The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

Since 2006, “Under the Moonlight” has raised more than $2,000,000 for RMHD, which serves families with seriously ill or injured children who are receiving treatment in the Dallas area by providing them with a home-away-from-home. Over RMHD’s 37-year history, it has hosted over 38,000 families with compassionate family-centered care. Although RMHD asks guest families to contribute only $15 per night, no family is ever turned away for an inability to pay.
