BENEFITING: RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES OF NASHVILLE TN
EVENT: Calls for Kids Telecast 2016
EVENT DATE: Apr 16, 2016
Dear Friends and Family,
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page. As you may know, I volunteer at Ronald McDonald House (RMH) about twice a month. It is one of the most rewarding and humbling service opportunities I have ever experienced. Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) is an amazing organization and I love its mission to "keep families close." I am serving on the 25th Annual Calls for Kids Telecast committee. The telecast is the largest fundraising effort that the Nashville house conducts each year. To help support the programs of RMHC, I made a personnel commitment to raise at least $1,000 for this event.
The Nashville RMH provides a “home away from home” for families with a seriously ill child in a local hospital. The families may be from Tennessee or any other state or even a foreign country. The children may be premature infants, having heart surgery, undergoing chemotherapy for various cancers, the victims of an accident, or suffering from any number of critical health problems. It is a place where the family, including siblings and grandparents, can stay together in a home-like atmosphere while their child is receiving medical care. Hot meals and groceries are made available to them, and there are free laundry facilities with all supplies provided. Last year, more than 800 families stayed at the 32-bedroom house.
Many of you have joined me in raising money for this great organization in years past, and for that I am very grateful. If you would like to help me reach my goal for this year’s telecast, which will help continue the great service the Nashville Ronald McDonald House provides, you can make a tax deductible donation via this page or if you prefer you can write a check payable to “Ronald McDonald House Charities” and give it to me or mail it directly to the Ronald McDonald House, 2144 Fairfax Avenue, Nashville, TN 37212.
RMHC of Nashville relies entirely on the contributions of the community and generous individuals like you to keep the house operating. Please be sure to watch the Calls for Kids Telecast on Saturday, April 16th, 7-10 p.m., on Nashville’s News 2 to learn more.
Thank you for your consideration and support.
