What is the Heart of the House Gala?

Heart of the House Gala, presented by Medical Properties Trust, brings RMHCA supporters together for a dynamic night of bidding, food and fun! In 2022, supporters and sponsors raised $484,930 to keep families together and near their child’s medical care, at no cost to them. This is a record-breaking total for RMHCA’s mission and we are so grateful for our Gala Committee, volunteers and sponsors who worked so hard behind the scenes to make Heart of the House Gala so magical.
