Gala 2017 celebrated and honored Dr. Harvey and Deana Freedman and Genentech for their extraordinary service and commitment to Ronald McDonald House of San Francisco.

Cheryl Jennings and Mike Nicco from ABC7 News emceed the evening’s program and the San Francisco Girls Chorus performed a wonderful and special musical set.

David Carvalho, San Francisco’s D.J. extraordinaire, performed on the turntable. Gabriel Butu, an international art and charity auctioneer who brings a British flair to auctions, having hosted auctions in over 20 cities around the world directed our Live Auction.

Silver Oak Cellars and Twomey Cellars were our exclusive wine purveyor for the evening’s dinner.


A big THANK YOU to all of the sponsors, donors and guests who made GALA 2017 “Our House” a tremendous success!

GALA 2017 raised $325,000 with record-breaking levels of support from our sponsors as well as the Live Auction and Fund-a-Need! Our special thanks to Cheryl Jennings & Mike Nicco of ABC7 News, the San Francisco Girls Chorus for their unforgettable performance of the song “Our House, our honorees Deana & Harvey Freedman and Genentech, and our extraordinary auctioneer Gabriel Butu.

And none of this would be possible without the leadership and support of our Board of Directors. We couldn’t do it without YOU❤. Click here for event photos:
