The Young Friends of the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas announced a Studio 54 theme for their ninth annual fundraiser benefitting the organization. Studio 54 will take place Friday, March 30, 2012, at the Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, from 8:00 p.m. to midnight. Geared toward the hip twenty and thirty-something crowd, this event will include cocktails, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction, dancing to DJ Lucy Wrubel and event design by Todd Events.

Event Co-Chairs Amy McEvoy and Bianca Colgin are excited to oversee the festivities. McEvoy said, “Not only is this event one of the best parties of the year, but it also raises money and awareness for the Ronald McDonald House, and its mission to provide a home-away-from-home for families whose children are receiving critical treatment at Dallas area hospitals.” Co-Chair Bianca Colgin echoed that excitement, adding, “This party will encompass the glamour of the legendary Studio 54 nightclub and serve as a venue for guests to have a fun night out while supporting a great cause.”

Tickets to the event are $85 for members of the Young Friends and $100 for non-members. For more information on joining the Young Friends and this event, visit
