Atlanta’s own Ryan Seacrest hosted the “Hearts and Hands” Charity Gala Saturday night to benefit The Ronald McDonald House. Six hundred and fifty guests attended this black tie affair held at The World of Coca-Cola. The Coca-Cola Company was also the presenting sponsor for this exciting new event. “American Idol” season six finalist Melinda Doolittle performed two sets of music to the sold out crowd and A Legendary Event provided the catering and floral décor for this much anticipated event.

President and Owner of A Legendary Event, Tony Conway remarked, “It was so great working with the Ronald McDonald House team. This particular organization does so much for families and it was wonderful to have an opportunity to support their efforts.” The Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities provide a home away from home for families with seriously ill and injured children who must travel to receive treatment at Atlanta area children’s hospitals.

  2. Although I live in the UK, I got to see Melinda Doolittle live in Nashville almost exactly two years ago. It was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had.

    I just wish I could make it to Feinstein's this next week, but sadly that is just not possible.

    If you can get to New York don't miss the opportunity.
