Atlanta’s own Ryan Seacrest will be coming back to his hometown this Saturday night for a McDonald House Charities Hearts and Hands Gala Saturday October 24. Coca Cola, a major sponsor of “Idol,” is also the presenting sponsor of this black-tie affair, which will be held at the World of Coca Cola.
The event is sold out. Seacrest will come by and tour one of the homes near Emory Saturday morning. McDonald House spokeswoman Carrie Bowden said Coca Cola was able to line up Seacrest. I will try to stop by and grab Seacrest for a few minutes.
The Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities provides a home away from home for families of seriously ill and injured children who must travel to receive treatment at Atlanta area children’s hospitals. There are two homes in Atlanta.
