Santa visits the Ronald McDonald House,
thanks to all of his helpers!
Many families find themselves away from home during the holidays while their child is being treated at a local hospital. During this time of year, it is extra difficult to be away from home and loved ones while trying to figure out how to provide a joyful holiday experience for your family. This is where the community that supports us comes together to ease some of this burden and bring love and light to our families this time of year. In the days leading up to Christmas, we create a special Winter Wonderland boutique where parents can come and “shop” for the gifts that have been donated to the House for their children, their significant other, and themselves. The room is filled with gifts for every age and is a wondrous sight to see. In addition to Winter Wonderland – volunteer groups put together gift bags for the families who were up at Primary Children’s Hospital and guests in our Family Room. On Christmas morning, Santa was able to deliver the presents to our House guests. Thank you to our community, volunteers, donors, staff, and to Santa and all his helpers, for the magical experience of Winter Wonderland and Christmas morning at the Ronald McDonald House.
Mitt Romney and Family Visit the Ronald McDonald House
We had so much fun with Ann and Mitt Romney last month for one of our largest House Bingo games ever. They shared their time and love with us and helped us make wonderful holiday memories. Thank you Romney Family!
The Ronald McDonald House puts together one of the top fundraising events in Salt Lake City every year tied to a themed destination that one of our guests will win. This year our destination is Banff, Canada – Where Enchantment Meets Adventure. We would love for you to be involved. The 2019 Gala Sponsorship Package is now available by clickingHERE. You can support us by purchasing an individual ticket, becoming a sponsor, or even putting together a gift basket for our silent auction valued at $100 or more. All of the proceeds from these activities go to help support families caring for their ill or injured child. We hope you can join us on Saturday, April 27 at The Grand America. More information is available on our website. If you have any additional questions, you can reach our Events Manager at Stephanie@rmhslc.org or at 801-363-4663
