WHAT: 2018 Boo Ball
WHERE: Hilton Americans-Houston
Ronald McDonald House Houston (RMH Houston) hosted its 2018 Boo Ball on Saturday, October 27 at the Hilton Americas-Houston in downtown. The “Hocus Pocus” themed soiree brought together and celebrated the generosity of more than 700 of RMH Houston’s biggest supporters for a spooktacular evening that raised $970,000 for the House.
Longtime RMH Houston supporters Stephanie and Anthony Milam served as event chairs, while KHOU Channel 11’s Chita Craft emceed the festivities. The night’s event called for black tie or Halloween-inspired attire. Upon arriving, guests sipped on cocktails and perused the numerous silent auction items. For dinner, attendees noshed on decadent stout braised beef short rib with a manchego gremolata, while dessert was nothing short of sweet with Witches Brew – a bubbling milk chocolate crunch with slimy green sauce – and Witches Eye – a white chocolate dome with a passionfruit mango center – on the menu. Funds raised through the 2018 Boo Ball will support RMH Houston’s mission to provide a home away from home for families of seriously ill children being treated in the Texas Medical Center.
