But, to her surprise – and to the consternation of her staff – the hospice chief executive is feeling nervous.
"People have told me they have never seen me like this," she says. "But I am WAY out of my comfort zone."
She has agreed to dance a samba, with a professional partner, in front of 650 people at the Hilton on March 17.
A confirmed non-dancer, who admits she has never watched BBC show Strictly Come Dancing, she has spent the last three months training for the hospice's fabulous fundraiser, which is entitled (A Little Less) Strictly Come Dancing.
Kristina Rihanoff and Robin Windsor, who are professionals on the hit TV show, will perform a showcase dance, and six couples from the worlds of business and entertainment will compete to be crowned champion.
Judges will include television and radio presenter Kaye Adams, designer John Amabile, who took part in the 2010 Glasgow event, and former ballroom and Latin American champion John Comrie.
Last year's event raised more than £55,000 for the hospice and the charity is hoping to beat that total this year.
So if it is all so scary, why do it?
"I wanted to prove to the team that if I can do it, anyone can," says Rhona, who has set herself the goal of raising £15,000 for the hospice in memory of her brother-in-law David Greenhill.
He died in the hospice last year after having cancer for nine years. "We are asking the whole team here to fundraise for the hospice, so I wanted to do something too.
"I am also fast approaching my 50th birthday so I wanted to do something with an element of risk, something that would be physically challenging."
SHE adds, with a laugh: "That is definitely the case!"
Rhona, who has already chosen her outfit – a striking black and hot pink number she has designed herself – is partnering Kevin Nicoll, who is a professional dancer from Glasgow.
"Kevin is wonderful and we get on very well," she says.
"He is very patient and has a great sense of humour.
"We decided early on in the training process we do not have a huge desire to win. We just want to make a good account of ourselves, entertain people and raise lots of money for the hospice."
Rhona's family – husband Jim, daughter Robyn and son Fraser – are looking forward to watching her debut on the dance floor.
"Jim does not want to know anything about it until the night so he hasn't seen the dress, or any of my training sessions," says Rhona.
"He wants it to be a complete surprise - so no pressure!
"But they have been very supportive – and I am really looking forward to showing them what I can do"
The Evening Times is backing the hospice's bid to raise £15m for a new facility, due to open in 2016 in Bellahouston Park.
For the first time, the hospice will provide dedicated care for people aged 15-25.

BY DAY Rhona Baillie is the respected, hard-working chief executive of the Prince And Princess Of Wales Hospice in Glasgow.
By night – well, for ONE night at least – she will be a samba queen, set to raise the roof (and maybe the trophy) at a glittering dance event in aid of the charity.
She talks to ANN FOTHERINGHAM about fun, fundraising and the fear of falling flat on the dance floor
