Shine Up Your Red Shoes and Dance the Night Away

Red Shoe Gala Supports Families in Medical Crisis

OKLAHOMA CITY (August 8, 2019) – Ronald McDonald House Charities® Oklahoma City supporters and Red Shoe Gala Co-Chairs Dave and Stacy Lopez with Lindsey and Brandon Hart are asking you to put on your fancy red shoes and attend the Red Shoe Gala at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, August 24 at The Skirvin Hilton to support Ronald McDonald House® Charities Oklahoma City (RMHC-OKC).

“If you ever need a good reason to dress up and have a good time with friends, this is it,” said Stacy Lopez, Red Shoe Gala co-chair. “Not only will you have a memorable evening, but you are doing it with a purpose. You will leave with the incredible feeling you have positively impacted the health and well-being of countless children by providing a ‘home-away-from-home’ for their families and loved ones.”

The evening begins with a cocktail reception followed by dinner and the Red Shoe Award presentation. The evening will conclude with live music featuring My So Called Band and dancing.

“After attending the event the last five years, we realized what a profound and direct effect this Gala makes on raising money to house families in medical crisis,” said Lindsey Hart, Red Shoe Gala co-chair. “You get to show off your red shoes, enjoy fine dining, dance to the fabulous live entertainment and bid on some exceptional auction items. All to support Oklahoma families.”

This year’s Red Shoe Award recipient will honor Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites OKC North.

“Each year our organization reflects on everyone who has truly impacted our mission to help families in a medical crisis,” said Susan Adams, RMHC-OKC president and ceo. “We look for someone who goes above and beyond and carries themselves with integrity, compassion and sense of community. We feel that the Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites OKC North embodies these qualities and so much more.”

Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites OKC North stepped up to help house up to 14 guest families while RMHC-OKC is building 26 more rooms at The Children’s Hospital. The staff go out of their way to make sure RMHC-OKC families have the support they need while taking care of their hospitalized child. Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites OKC North employees are frequent volunteers in many capacities such as: providing space for RMHC-OKC Meet and Greet dinners, stuffing welcome bags for new families and participating in Walk for Kids. All of this and much more to help keep families together and near the medical resources needed for their hospitalized child.

Join us for an unforgettable night while supporting RMHC-OKC’s mission to keep families together during a medical crisis. To learn more about sponsorships and tickets, please visit www.rmhc-okc.org/red-shoe-gala
