34th Annual Hope Couture Fashion Gala

The Roaring 20s

34th Annual Hope Couture Fashion Gala

Wednesday, September 23rd, 2020.

On September 23, 2020, RMHC Manitoba held its first virtual event - the Roaring 20s-themed, 34th Annual Hope Couture Fashion Gala. The event saw a generous outpouring of support for the RMHC Manitoba Mission. $250,000 was raised in support of keeping families together where and when it's needed most. All Gala proceeds support RMHC Manitoba’s two core programs - Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room. Our heartfelt gratitude goes out to all who made this incredible event possible.

Thank you to everyone who joined us for a virtual evening of fashion, family, and fun all in support of the seriously ill, chronically ill and injured children and their families at RMHC Manitoba.

As a virtual guest, the Gala was experienced from an online video link, which included:

  • An exclusive, glamourous fashion show brought to you by Liz Crawford from Swish Productions/Swish Model Management, featuring the latest styles from local designers and boutiques including:
    • Mad About Style
    • Fashion Paradise
    • Flaunt Boutique
    • Aevi Spa Salon Boutique
    • ALDO
    • So Over It Luxury Consignment
    • Out of the Blue
    • Lennard Taylor
  • Over $70,000 in incredible prizes to be won from our online silent auction.
  • Symbolic Family Stay Live Auction brought to you by Gregg Maidment from ADESA Winnipeg
  • Emcees - QX104’s Brody Jackson and Randy Parker
  • RMHC Manitoba Mission moments and impact

RMHC Manitoba incurred significant costs due to the March 12th postponed event - many services/supplies were already delivered in preparation for the evening. In alignment with our Mission to serve and support, we donated the March 12th Gala dinners to Siloam Mission. 

Guests were encouraged to safely come together in a location of their choice to enjoy the Gala with each other in a celebration of fun, fashion, and family.

Providing families the gift to be together is priceless. 

RMHC Manitoba is incredibly grateful for all our Gala supporters’ kindness and generosity to give back and help families.  All proceeds from the Hope Couture Fashion Gala stay local helping families stay together – close to the medical care their children need, and close to each other.

We hope you enjoyed this fabulous, heart-warming evening, which does so much to help us continue to keep children and their families close. Thank you.
