The Ronald McDonald House Charity is New Zealand’s leading family care charity, helping more than 3,700 Kiwi families every year. RMHC provides families with accommodation close to hospitals for when their children are undergoing treatment, allowing them to be together during some of the toughest times imaginable. Not just a bed in a building, RMHC offers a home-from-home with pastoral support for those who truly need it.
The Red Shoe Ball is an annual event hosted by RHMC to raise the money needed to continue its crucial work.
2018 was the ball’s tenth anniversary. To honour the amazing work RMHC had achieved across the decade, Mango designed an event around the theme of “reflections”.
Silver models greeted the almost 500 guests on arrival who were invited to take their seats by the Topp Twins, New Zealand’s iconic entertainers who later ‘assisted’ with the live auction. Inside an installation showcased stories and quotes from those whose lives had been helped by RMHC.
The night included a silent and a live auction, comedy and music acts. In all a staggering $250,000 was raised, the most in its 10 year history.
