Donaldson-Bannister Farm, Dunwoody, Georgia

The Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities' 12th Annual Hearts and Hands Gala, presented by The Coca-Cola Company, will be a unique gala experience. Join us for an unforgettable evening under the stars at the historic Donaldson-Bannister Farm in Dunwoody, Georgia, to celebrate 42 years of keeping families close to one another and the life-saving care their children need. Highlights include the following:

  • Farm-to-table style cuisine experience incorporating fresh ingredients from local farms with a Southern twist.
  • Entertainment featuring Atlanta's Bogey and the Viceroy. Bandleader Bogey Thornton has been entertaining audiences  for more than 15 years with his signature brand of swanky soul. 
  • Our annual Wine Pull will offer guests the chance to win quality, high-value wines. A live and silent auction with one-of-a-kind experiences will also be a highlight of the evening.
  • Dress farm-chic. Think dazzling denim & diamonds or your best Western wear. We will be on both pavement and grass so be sure to incorporate comfort into your style.
  • Meet a family who has stayed at the Atlanta Ronald McDonald House and learn how your support makes a difference.

*Shuttle service to the farm begins at 6 p.m. from the guest parking lot about .4 miles from the farm. 


Our priority is to always provide a safe event experience for the well-being of our guests, our staff and our community. We are taking all the necessary measures to ensure a safe environment outdoors on October 16. A full list of the ways we plan to keep our supporters safe, please click the below button.
