Funds raised through Home for Dinner support BC and Yukon families when they need it most!
Sharing a meal with loved ones is always a special occasion and it’s even more special when it raises funds to support families staying at Ronald McDonald House BC & Yukon. That’s what Home for Dinner is all about. By hosting dinner and having guests donate instead of bringing wine or a dish, you can help RMH BC provide a place to stay for families who need to travel far from home when their child requires life-saving medical treatment.
The cost to provide accommodation and essential support for a family staying with us in our 73-bedroom House is $125 per night. Hosting a Home for Dinner for an evening ensures that their stay feels just like home.
Home for Dinner participants are also invited to an exciting virtual celebration on Thursday, October 15. We hope you will join us to toast your impact on families with exclusive entertainment, special guests, an online auction and more!
About Home for Dinner
Hosting a Home for Dinner event is the perfect way to elevate a meal with those you love into something even more meaningful. Instead of bringing something for dinner, have your guests donate to RMH BC, so families with sick children can continue to share meals and moments together while they heal.
Host or Attend
a Fundraising Dinner
Create a personal fundraising page, participate in a dinner, and attend the virtual celebration. Fundraise to receive exciting prizes like meal delivery gift cards and other special offers from our partners to help your make your evening a hit.
With the generous gift of $150, you can attend the virtual celebration without fundraising. You’ll receive a $50 meal delivery gift certificate and a $100 tax receipt.
Join Us for a Virtual Celebration on Thursday, October 15
For the past 17 years, RMH BC’s A Night to Dream Gala has brought together more than 400 philanthropists and business leaders for an evening in support of families. Instead of our usual event, this year we are inviting you to our virtual celebration. Join fellow supporters, RMH BC families, and some very special guests for a short and sweet event for a great cause.
We’ll toast to your fundraising success, meet some of the families you are supporting, bid in the online auction, enjoy fabulous entertainment with special guests and connect with other RMH BC supporters. We can’t wait to see you there!
