PASADENA – Ronald McDonald 
House Pasadena is pleased to invite 
everyone to the SHINE Gala: A Night 
at Home Together on October 17, 
2020. Join the fun to virtually celebrate 
the strength of the families they 
serve and raise critical funds to keep 
their doors open. In today’s turbulent 
times, providing a safe and welcoming 
“home-away-from-home" for 
families with critically ill children is 
more relevant than ever. 

The highly anticipated virtual event 
will engage many members of our 
community to highlight the network 
of support that allows families 
to heal, and will feature the touching 
story of Yessica and her daughter, 
Naira Sofia, who are currently staying 
at the House. Together, we will 
honor Shriners for Children Medical 
Center for their invaluable partnership 
and remarkable medical care for 
children. Registration is free to anyone, 
anywhere who wants to join in 
on the fun. 

Limited VIP Tickets are available for 
purchase, and include the delivery of 
a curated SHINE at Home Kit, so you 
can celebrate in style. 

“While these turbulent times have made an impact on the entire community, it has been especially 
hard for families with critically ill children. Many parents who were already experiencing 
anxiety due to their child’s illness, must continue going to medical facilities for treatment, at a 
time when it is safer to stay inside,” says Executive Director Mara Leong-Maguinez. “It is more 
important than ever to come together as a community to help families with critically ill children 
embrace life and healing with a sense of hope. Together, we can keep our House shining 
for years to come.” 

Funds raised through the SHINE Gala–chaired by Wendy Dougherty– will support the Ronald 
McDonald House Pasadena mission of providing comfort, care, and support to families 
with critically ill children, keeping them close to one another, their doctors, and needed medical 
care. Sponsors for the event include Food Properties Group and the Delphey Family as 
Diamond Sponsors; and Megan and Rick Foker, LA Financial Credit Union, Sharp Seating, 
San Antonio Winery and Shriners for Children Medical Center as Platinum Sponsors.
