Schedule of Festivities

​Mistletoe Magic Gala

Tuesday, November 22, 2016
6:00 p.m.-10:00 p.m.

​Since 1989, the RUHS Foundation's annual Gala has inspired this generous community to support the health of our children. Together, we have raised more than $8 million to fund equipment and programs that make a difference in the life of a child. The need is great, and we are inspired to do more! Through Fund-A-Need, a live and silent auction, and ticket and table purchases, we raise awareness and funds to make a difference…for the love of a child!

*Advanced ticket purchase required.
