Red Shoe Gala

Thanks to all who joined us this year for our 9th Annual Red Shoe Gala! On October 20, friends of Ronald McDonald House Charities put on their red shoes for an evening of dinner, dancing, mission and fun at the White River Conference Center.

This year we featured Red Light Runner – Springfield’s ultimate rock band! Red Light Runner is a collaboration of musicians from some of Springfield’s premier bands, including the remaining Smokey Folk members, Drew Beine and David Pyck, Steven Sparks (formerly of Mood Ring Circus), Richie Allen (formerly of Pearl Nation), and Nick Archambault (formerly of Luna J). Their music is meant for die-hard music fans of the last 50 years and we were thrilled to welcome them to the stage this year!

The night’s fun included the Red Shoe Cam, “Shoebox Surprise”, Selfie Mirror Photo Booth, ShowStopper 360 Spin Booth, Red Shoe Contest, Adopt a Family Program and more!

100% of proceeds benefited Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Ozarks, helping children and families through Springfield’s two Ronald McDonald Houses and the Tooth Truck (our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile). So, thank you to those who joined us and PUT YOUR RED SHOES ON to provide help and hope to those who need it most.
