Celebrating 30 years with a Caribbean spirit

Thatched huts, tiki bars, and a St. Lucia Steel Drum Performance marked Caribbean Nights McGala 2018, a celebration of Ronald McDonald House’s 30th anniversary serving families with sick children wishing to take advantage of Jacksonville’s medical community.

More than 500 guests gathered in the ballroom at Sawgrass Marriott Resort May 19, raising $300,000 to support the San Marco residence that has catered to more than 35,000 families so far.

“It’s quite a milestone for us. It’s so great that everyone has come with their Caribbean spirit,” said Ronald McDonald House Executive Director Diane Boyle. “We recently renovated so our facility went from 30 to 53 bedrooms and has a rooftop garden and a fitness center. But most important is our mission – the compassionate care we provide for our families. We help them through very challenging times.”
