Red Tie Gala 2015

Presented by: ConAgra Foods

Saturday, February 21, 2015
Galt House Hotel

Cocktails & Appetizers started at 6 p.m.
Dinner started at 8 p.m.

More than 550 attendees joined us for our 2015 Red Tie Gala and they helped gross $268,000!

The snow and sleet couldn’t keep our supporters away. Despite the dreadful weather outside, we had a grand party inside at The Galt House Hotel. Approximately 550 guests gathered for the annual Red Tie gala, which grossed over $268,000 this year! The live and silent auctions boasted NCAA Final Four tickets, a stunning vacation home in Palm Beach, a Derby Box, beautiful artwork, autographed sports memorabilia, a weekend hunting trip, a condo in Aruba, hot air balloon rides, bourbon galore and so much more!

Special guests joining us for all of the fun included Ben Davis and Kelly K from 99.7 WDJX who emceed the event, Shaun Logsdon, the cowboy hat wearing quick talking auctioneer and DJ Dave with Odyssey Mobile Entertainment who had us dancing into the night.  The best guests of all were Levi McGuire and his parents who shared the story of how they called Ronald McDonald House home while Levi was in the NICU after his premature arrival.

We had a great night, and none of it would have been possible without our amazing sponsors who are listed below.
