What is McGala? McGala is a spectacular evening filled with music, dancing, elegant cuisine, cocktails, a variety of auction items, raffles and more! 100% of the proceeds go directly towards our House to help us in our mission of providing a home-away-from-home for families of hospitalized children.
When/Where is McGala? The event is Saturday, March 2, 2019 at the Clay Center for the Arts & Sciences of West Virginia. We have reserved a block of rooms at Embassy Suites and you may call the hotel at (304) 347-8700 to reserve. Event registration opens at 6 PM.
Where should I park? The Clay Center offers the convenience of a parking lot on Washington Street immediately across from the building. Handicap parking is available in the Clay Center parking lot and on Washington Street, next to the Clay Center.
What should I wear? We all like to look our best! While a tux is preferred, it isn't required. Ladies! Evening gowns are great, but if you're coming to dance, cocktail attire is suitable as well! If you're worried, check the Ronald McDonald House Facebook page to view some pics from previous years!
Can I bid on auction items if I'm not attending? Yes! Our silent auction will be electronic this year and you can register to participate even if you aren't attending McGala. Participants will receive text and/or email notifications regarding items that you are "watching," bidding on, winning, etc.
What are the rules for the auction? All McGala sales are final. No returns or exchanges are permitted. Payment can be made via cash, check or credit card. Payment is requested in full at the close of the auction. All items are subject to a starting minimum bid and have incremental amounts placed on additional bids.
How do I pick up my auction item if I win? Winning Bidders can pick up their auction item at the close of the auction on the night of the event once all balances have been paid. For Winning Bidders who are not attending the event, items can be picked up at RMHC between 9 am and 9 pm once all balances have been paid. For "Vacation" packages, information will be emailed to the Winning Bidder once all balances have been paid. Unfortunately, we cannot ship auction items.
How does registration/check-in work? Our entire event will be electronic this year, from ticketing, to check-in, to bidding on auction items, to check-out. We encourage you to register the attendees for your table(s) prior to the event so that all attendees will receive communication regarding the evening. We're proud to have you as a guest and welcome you to this year's McGala!
