Bravery, resilience, and unshakable determination—it’s what families of RMHC Maine are made of.

On November 12 we will honor these courageous families, past and present, at our 20th annual Hearts & Hands Gala: Virtually Unstoppable. When confronted with their child’s illness, parents and caregivers find strength they never knew they had to face battles they are determined to overcome.


But they shouldn’t face the battle alone. This statewide virtual gala calls on supporters from across Maine and beyond to rally behind the families in need of comfort, care, and compassion. The event will feature an online auction, inspirational family stories, and a livestream right from the stage at Aura. Proceeds support RMHC Maine programs, which are here for families doubly impacted during this global health crisis. Thanks to supporters like you, families don’t have to be brave alone.

Online Auction

Livestream Program
