I am pleased to present another great evening in Dallas presented by the Young Friends of Ronald McDonald House of Dallas benefitting RMHD. A special event called Hops for the House is a benefit at Community Beer Company scheduled for Friday March 3 from 8 pm to midnight.
The 14th annual party is a staple on the young professionals party scene, and will be chaired by Hannah Kohler and Emily Wickman.
Young Friends of RMHD is an auxiliary organization of 300 Dallas professionals ranging in age from 24-35 who lend their visibility and efforts to support RMHD. This year’s event will feature the Jordan Kahn Orchestra and beer brewed on-site by the experts at Community Beer Company, which touts “Beer for The Greater Good”. Creative food stations by Food Glorious Food will incorporate the craft beers, and will be followed by a silent auction and dancing. All-inclusive tickets for the event at 1530 Inspiration Drive on the edge of the Design District are available for $100 and can be purchased online at yftickets.com. There are also sponsorships available from $500 to $15,000. A limited number of VIP tickets are also available for $130, which offer a valet fast pass, private brewery tour and food pairing during the party, and swag.
“Our annual Young Friends party is a fun-filled opportunity for our volunteers, their friends and colleagues to let loose while raising funds and awareness for the House,” said Jill Cumnock, chief executive officer of RMHD. “The Young Friends community is made up of emerging philanthropists and community leaders who generously contribute to the energy of this evening and the future of our cause.”
All proceeds from the annual Young Friends party directly fund operational expenses for RMHD, which hosts 1,200 families each year while their children are receiving treatment for illnesses or injuries at Dallas hospitals. As a home-away-from-home for seriously ill or injured children and their families, the House serves a critical need for families who stay there, all of whom come from distances greater than 40 miles away from Dallas. Although RMHD asks guest families to contribute only $15 per night, no family is ever turned away for an inability to pay.
Tickets and sponsorships for “Hops for the House” are available by visiting rmhdallas.org/young-friends/ or by contacting Bailey Kafer, Special Events Manager of RMHD, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214.624.5363.
