Celebrating raising money and awareness.
Sometimes, fundraising becomes something more. Something bigger. Something that can raise both money and awareness. And sometimes, these things can be fun. Throughout the year, we’re happy to celebrate all the good being done with some very special events and programs. Whether it’s our annual House Party! fundraising gala, dedicated TeamRMHS participants and volunteers for the Monterey Bay Half Marathon, or an exciting day playing 18 holes at our annual Golf Invitational or Coach Bill Campbell Challenge Cup, we found ways to make doing good feel even better.
House Party! (held in Spring)
Every year, our House Party! fundraising gal brings together members of our extended House community for an evening of food, friends, and fun, including over-the-top entertainment, and once-in-a-lifetime auction and raffle prizes. With a creative and sometimes surprising new theme every year, House Party! is one of the premier events on the peninsula.
Ronald McDonald House at Stanford Golf Invitational and Silicon Valley Challenge Cup (held in June)
The Golf Invitational is a key fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House at Stanford. Held every June at both Stanford University Golf Course and Sharon Heights Golf & Country Club, the Invitational brings together House supporters to enjoy a day of friendly competition, followed by a relaxed evening reception and awards ceremony at the beautiful Rosewood Sand Hill.
Introduced in 2015, the Silicon Valley Challenge Cup invites Silicon Valley business sectors to compete against each other for the coveted prize of being named the "Supreme Link to the Success of Silicon Valley."
Children’s Circle Reception (held every Fall)
Children’s Circle was created in 1994 to honor donors whose significant gifts support operations, endowment, or capital expenses. Every year, Children’s Circle donors are honored at a special, intimate reception featuring engaging guest speakers. Past event speakers include former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Elizabeth Holmes of Theranos.
