25th Annual Bandana Ball
Relive some of the magical moments of the night through our Bandana Ball video produced by Mason Jar Films.
Bandana Ball was a huge success!
From the moment our guests stepped off the shuttle buses and entered the enchanting Wild Onion Ranch on March 22, we knew something special was in the air! Over 880 friends, business and community leaders came together to experience the 25th Annual Bandana Ball and it was yet another exciting event. Complete with a fabulous auction, fantastic music by The Spazmatics and extraordinary catering by 2Dine4 Catering, the Bandana Ball raised $530,000 to support families of critically ill or injured children in Austin-area hospitals. Guests were inspired by families like Chris and Terri Lowery who called the Ronald McDonald House home for 16 days when their daughter, Rebecca, was hospitalized as an infant. Their story helped raised a record $160,000 in Sponsor A Family gifts and donations are still being made today to support our families.
Thank you for helping provide our families a "home-away-from-home." It is because of your generosity that Ronald McDonald House Charities can care for thousands of families whose lives have rapidly changed when their children are healing in the hospital. We are deeply grateful.
