23rd Bandana Ball Continues Boost of Ronald McDonald House
The 23rd Annual Bandana Ball benefiting the Ronald McDonald House offered an incredibly fun evening for friends and fans of the House. A sold-out crowd gathered at the Wild Onion Ranch south of Austin for socializing, a silent auction, dinner by 2Dine4, beautiful scenery, and dancing their boots off to the music of the Spazmatics. Event Chairs Hawley and Royce Poinsett led an eager committee in creating the
evening of fun with a very serious purpose.
The Ronald McDonald House provided respite for over 1300 families last year with likely the same number arriving this year. It is an essential element in helping families stay together while their children are being treated in Austin hospitals. Families have found relief, comfort and compassion 24/7 for over 25 years at the Ronald McDonald House.
