Last Friday was the annual Ronald McDonald House gala. If you remember, we have attended the last three years with a group of our friends. It’s always such a fun event and gives us an opportunity to celebrate an organization that is so near and dear to our hearts.
This year we had THREE tables…that’s right! 30 of our friends and family attended with us. And this year we had a surprise for them. Earlier this fall, our friends at the RMH asked us to be their feature family. What an honor! We were so happy to have a chance to share our RMH story and raise awareness (and hopefully donations!) for them. To this day, we still don’t feel like we have been able to give enough back to them, for what they gave to us while Elena was in the hospital for 20 days.
For those that aren’t familiar with the RMH, it is a haven for families who are thrown into situations with sick children. We spent that first night at Riley in the RMH. I remember thinking, “how did I get here?” No one ever thinks they will need the services provided by the RMH, until you do. Most of the families have no other choice. They can’t afford a hotel or three meals a day outside of home. The sanctity it provides is unmatched, both physically and mentally. We were so proud to be able to share their message and will continue to do so.
You can see our video below, but it will also be up on their website soon. Feel free to make a donation or sign up to volunteer your time while there! Here’s their website: http://www.rmh-indiana.org/
