Guests bid at the 16th Annual Heart of the House Gala

What is the Heart of the House Gala?

Heart of the House Gala is an annual event that brings RMHCA supporters together for a dynamic night of bidding, food and fun! The event raises, on average, $250,000 for the mission of RMHCA.

Traditionally, Heart of the House Gala is an in-person event but for the last two years we have hosted it virtually for the health and safety of all during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are currently planning the 2022 event and can’t wait to share details with you!

Questions? Contact Community Outreach Manager Stephanie Duncan at or 205-638-7372.
