Thanks to the generosity of the community and the William N. Pennington Foundation, Ronald McDonald House Charities® Northern Nevada will be renovating all 12 bedrooms of the Ronald McDonald House. The outpouring of support for RMHC® at the recent Red Shoe Gala was overwhelming, as attendees donated $100,000 during the live auction and paddle raise portions of the event, which the Pennington Foundation offered to match in support of renovations to the 30+ year old Ronald McDonald House. All $200,000 will be used for the remodeling project.
The benevolence of our supporters at the Red Shoe Gala was inspiring. We are so excited to be able to offer updated rooms and facilities to the 800+ families we serve every year. The community, along with the Pennington Foundation, deserve all of the praise for stepping up to provide an improved home-away-from-home for families with children in our local hospitals.
The renovations will include new plumbing, flooring, electrical, and furniture for all 12 bedrooms. Construction is set to begin in 2020, and the project will be completed in sections to ensure the House remains open to the families it serves.
Keep an eye out for updates once the remodel gets underway!
