Providing a "home away from home" for families with ill and injured children receiving treatment at Atlanta area hospitals. Atlanta's two Ronald McDonald Houses have been home to over 45,000 families since 1979. Families receive the comfort of home and gain much needed strength.
Thanks to generous volunteers and corporate partners in the community, our two Houses are filled with love, hope and support. Volunteers share their time and talents to ensure families experiencing medical hardship receive nourishing meals, a shoulder to lean on and much more.
We host a variety of fundraising events including our annual Hearts and Hands Gala. A portion of proceeds are raised through the silent and live auctions. In the past, we have featured special artwork made by our very own families. In addition to silent and live auctions, this exclusive black-tie seated dinner has featured special performances from Ryan Seacrest, Gavin DeGraw, Natasha Bedingfield, Jeff Foxworthy, Megan Hilty and NEEDTOBREATHE.
