Kilts for Kids
What is Kilts for Kids?
Kilts for Kids is an annual fundraiser that supports the Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of the Intermountain Area and the pediatric patients we serve.
Individuals and Teams (Kilters) raise money during the month of October to support our families – and work to secure enough votes to become the Kilted Champion. Each $25 increment equals 1 vote.
Nominations are accepted through September 25th! Anyone is eligible and you can sign up as a team!
Photo sessions will be scheduled as soon as you are confirmed. We will capture you in all of your kilted glory provide you with digital photos, a life-size cardboard cut-out, and a mini cardboard cut-out.
The Virtual Kickoff will take place on September 30th. You will get to meet the other “kilters” on a kickoff Zoom call, gain access to your own personal fundraising webpage, receive some great tips and tricks for fundraising success, and ask any remaining questions you have before we start!
The Kilts for Kids campaign runs through the entire month of October! You can use whatever means you have to raise awareness and raise votes through donations. This includes everything from emails, to social media posts, to event appearances and potential media! Everything is on the table! The most important thing is to have fun and raise money for our kids and their families!
The Kilted Champion will be unveiled on November 8th at our Virtual Awards Ceremony – along with other prizes for milestones and moments during the campaign.
Please join us as one of our next Kilters. You will have fun and raise money for a great cause!
To sign up as a Kilter or Kilter Team, please email Stephanie@rmhslc.org with your name and if you are signing up as an individual or a team.
Our Inspiration – Baby Eli
Eli was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma in 2015, before his first birthday. He is one of the 15,000 courageous and beautiful children receiving needed pediatric specialty care, whose families find a home-away-from-home each year with Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Intermountain Area. “Ronald McDonald House was honestly the only thing that kept my sanity because I didn’t have to worry a about where we were staying, what we were eating, or Eli getting sick while he recovered. Thank you!” – Eli’s Mom Kate
Eli is a few years older and is actually wearing a kilt again and teaming up with our Chief Pawsitivity Officer, Ollie – to raise awareness and money for Ronald McDonald House Charities!
