Two Oklahoma City Hilton Property Teams Partner to Support Ronald McDonald House
DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport and Hilton Garden Inn Oklahoma City Quail Springs make generous contributions to the annual Red Shoe Gala
OKLAHOMA CITY - DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport is proud to partner with sister property Hilton Garden Inn Oklahoma City Quail Springs in support of the 16th annual Red Shoe Gala. The annual fundraiser for the Ronald McDonald House of Oklahoma City helps fund continued operations in support of its mission to house ill and injured children and their families at no cost while receiving treatment from one of several hospitals in the area.
“The Ronald McDonald House is very near to our hearts and is one our management team makes an effort to support yearly,” said Gee Rios, general manager, DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport.
In fact, support for the Ronald McDonald House extends beyond property level for these two hotels! Both DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport and Hilton Garden Inn Oklahoma City Quail Springs are owned by Lopez Properties, founded by local entrepreneurs John C. and Pat Lopez. The pair and their family are dedicated supporters of the Ronald McDonald House and its’ annual Red Shoe Gala, with several family members on the charity board.
John P. Lopez is chairing the “Opening Doors, Finding Hope” capital campaign. The goal of the fundraiser is to fund the newest Ronald McDonald House in Oklahoma City. The capital campaign has raised over $1 million to date. The monumental success of the fundraiser will be formally announced at the Red Shoe Gala on August 11th, 2018 at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club. John P. Lopez is the son of John C. and Pat Lopez.
Inspired by their owner’s dedication to the non-profit, DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport and Hilton Garden Inn Oklahoma City Quail Springs are again partnering again this year to sponsor a guest table at the Gala. The table is valued at $3500 and directly helps to support the continued success of the Ronald McDonald House of Oklahoma City.
In addition, DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport will host the welcome reception for attendees, and Hilton Garden Inn Oklahoma City Quail Springs will host an honorary family for the Red Shoe Gala. Courtney Manning, Director of Sales at DoubleTree by Hilton Oklahoma City Airport has also contracted Back Stage Limo to provide memorable transportation for the family to the event.
“I want to thank both hotels for their enthusiasm in support of the Ronald McDonald House and the vision of John C. Lopez. It is through generous contributions like those made by the management teams of Double Tree by Oklahoma City Airport and Hilton Garden Inn Oklahoma City at Quail Springs that make the care of these children and their families possible. It is greatly appreciated,” said Dave Lopez, co-chair for the 16th Annual Red Shoe Gala and vice president of operations for Lopez Properties. Dave Lopez is also the son of John C. and Pat Lopez.
