Charity Gala Celebrates
The motto "Light my fire" sparked for the 9th time the Ronald McDonald Children's Aid Gala, on Friday 18th October.
International star artists along as numerous VIP guests from society, business, sports and arts have come to Vienna and made the event sold out since several weeks, the absolute highlight of the domestic society scene is one of the largest charity events in the country. "Neighbourhood helps" has been the the living credo of Ronald McDonald’s support programs that directly improve the health and well-being of children for over 30 years. During the gala, which was under the prominent patronage of Sonja Klima, money has been raised for the construction and operation of the Ronald McDonald children's houses through various donation formats. At the moment, the children association offers five homes close to the clinic in Austria for families with seriously ill children a "temporary home", so that they can directly accompany to the treatment.
Martin Steininger provided the outdoor kitchen ROCK.AIR for the live auction, which came under the hammer for a good cause.
With this year's record donation of 1.016,130 euros, the house’s project of the Ronald McDonald children association will be supporting children with serious illness and their family for the upcoming year.
