Storybook Ball GuestsOn Saturday, February 18, 2023, we celebrated our 27th Annual Storybook Ball, honoring philanthropist and interior designer, Suzanne Costa of Suzanne Costa Interiors! All proceeds benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida. It was a magical evening, to say the least! From fire and hula dancers to dancing on water, even Moana herself made an appearance! If you joined us, we hope you had a fabulous time! There are SO many people to thank, so many people who made this event come to life! To all our event vendors, volunteers, and planning committee who worked tirelessly alongside the staff to ensure guests had an unforgettable time! To our entertainment, who made sure our guests had a blast. To all the sponsors and supporters who donated in-kind, monetarily, or by attending our event. So many people were involved in ensuring Ronald McDonald House Charities of Southwest Florida had a successful event, which was quite a success!

Most importantly, we’d like to thank some of our past families that were able to join us that evening. When you share your stories with others, you bring to life why we do what we do and why it is so important. Your time and your words are priceless, and we are encouraged by you every day!
